Josh Allen had a strong start to the year, but the quarterback has hit a snag in recent weeks. The team is now on a two-game losing streak and attempting to right the ship.
According to one NFL analyst, it starts with the quarterback. Speaking on Get Up, Ryan Clark claimed that the quarterback needs to stop trying to put the team on his back. Here’s how he put it:
“Josh Allen is having a time in this season where he has to come to Jesus himself. He has to realize that, yes, ‘I can do everything at all times, but I don’t have to do everything…’ I feel like he’s trying to say ‘I’m the reason we’re going to win.'”
The quarterback is also dealing with an elbow injury that threatened to keep him out of the contest against the Vikings and impacted his ability to practice.
Josh Allen’s season through ten weeks
After nine games in 2022, the quarterback has thrown for 20 touchdowns and ten interceptions. During the losing streak, he has thrown for one touchdown and four interceptions. In the November 6 loss against the Jets, he threw for 205 yards and completed just 52.9 percent of his passes.
The quarterback won the game against the Packers, but turned in a similarly troubling performance. He threw for two touchdowns and two interceptions and completed 52 percent of his passes.
Fans and pundits wondered if the game would serve as the start of a downturn or if it was simply an anomaly. Now, a few weeks later, a pattern of struggle has materialized.
Next week, the team takes on the Cleveland Browns. Will Josh Allen return to his old self and snap the losing streak before it grows any more or have the Bills hit an insurmountable wall?
