As the Patriots get set to take on the Bills in Monday night football action, there is a player on Buffalo’s roster that would help out New England immediately. Quarterback Josh Allen would be that guy, and he is slowly but steadily becoming one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL.

Allen has had a trio of good games, most recently against the Denver Broncos on December 19. With a 70% completion percentage, Allen threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers were an upgrade from the week before against the Steelers, when Allen threw for 238 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Perhaps his best game this month was against the San Francisco 49ers. He threw for 375 yards and four touchdowns, and Buffalo was able to take down San Francisco.

Right now, Allen has it all going for him. The third-year quarterback has managed to refine his skills, and really made them work to his advantage. One of the things that was a knock against him coming out of college was his arm strength. Sometimes, he would put little too much strength under the football, and that would cause his throws to be erratic.

However, he has managed to harness that, and has definitely improved his touch when throwing the ball. In addition to his accuracy, he gets football out of his hands quick, which is great news for a receiver like Stefon Diggs. Diggs can make things happen after the catch, and he does so with ease.
