Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NFL - By Childs Walker

La­mar Jack­son suf­fered through his worst pass­ing game in more than a month in Sun­day’s 20-17 vic­tory over the 49ers. He ac­knowl­edged that the steady rain both­ered him as he com­pleted

14 of 23 passes for 105 yards. Jack­son still ranks fourth in the NFL in passer rat­ing and first in ESPN’s

QBR statis­tic. Tight end Mark An­drews proved again that he’s Jack­son’s go-to tar­get, catch­ing a touch­down in the first half and con­vert­ing a key first down on the win­ning drive.

Quar­ter­back Josh Allen has im­proved con­sid­er­ably. Af­ter throw­ing five touch­down passes and seven in­ter­cep­tions in Buf­falo’s first five games, he’s thrown for 11 touch­downs and just one in­ter­cep­tion in the next seven. The Bills still rank just 23rd in pass­ing and 17th in yards per at­tempt, but they’ve out­gained their op­po­nents through the air in eight of 12 games. For­mer Raven John Brown has been Allen’s top tar­get with 61 catches for 882 yards and five touch­downs.
