Josh Allen QB vs. Sam Howell QB
Josh Allen has been performing admirably this season as the quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. Through two games he’s completed 76% of his attempts for 511 yards at an average rate of 6.25 yards per pass attempt; 4 touchdowns have already come his way! Unfortunately there have been areas of concern; Allen has already been sacked seven times which could pose problems against Washington defense; his playstyle combines athleticism and arm strength but can lead to hasty decisions under pressure that has resulted in three interceptions this season.
Sam Howell has made quite an impression for the Washington Commanders since making his NFL debut. Howell boasts an impressive 65.7% completion rate while amassing 501 passing yards during his two NFL appearances. He’s had three touchdown passes to just one interception so far, suggesting a relatively conservative yet successful approach to his game. However, one significant issue arises here in that he’s been sacked 10 times across two games! Washington’s offensive line presents opportunities for Buffalo’s defense to exploit. Howell, known for quick reads and threading the needle, may face difficulties dealing with Buffalo’s intense pass rush in this game.
