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.
