Josh Allen turnovers could be big deal for Bills in playoffs

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills breathed a sigh of relief.

Allen was equal parts electric with three touchdown passes while he was an enigma with three turnovers in the Bills’ 34-31 wild card playoff win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

The Bills have been pushed to the brink, and they have a lot to improve on before their next playoff game, an opponent TBD.

“We’re going to grow from there,” Allen said after completing 23 of 39 passes for 352 yards. “All that matters is surviving and moving forward. It doesn’t matter how we win, that’s if we win. And I’m proud of our guys.

The Bills will celebrate this victory, but they were faced with reality against the Dolphins: if Allen keeps turning the ball over, he will be the reason Buffalo’s goal of reaching and winning the Super Bowl fails.

Allen is considered one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL, but his 16 interceptions and 22 giveaways this season, including that playoff game, tell another tale of reckless play.

Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Spencer Brown (#79), Josh Allen (#17) and center/guard Ryan Bates take on the Miami Dolphins in the second half.

And that’s not an encouraging sign for Allen and the Bills, three games away from their Super Bowl final goal.

“At the end of the day, you turn the ball over, you die pretty quickly,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said.

Perhaps more importantly, Allen must stay within Buffalo’s offensive confines.

Allen has a penchant for playing loose with football, and he often finds himself trying to play hero, taking shots deep down the pitch that don’t convert. .
