This week has been a whirlwind for the Buffalo Bills as their home game has been moved to Detroit because of severe weather in the area. The Bills are currently stuck in Buffalo, which is creating all kinds of logistic headaches for the team.
Eventually, the game will go on, one way or another. The team may have to fly to Detroit on Saturday when there is a gap in the weather. While the preparation for the game has been messy, there has been some good news for the team this week.
Whenever the game does take place, the Bills can take solace in the fact that they will have starting quarterback Josh Allen under center for the game. Allen has been limited all week but is now off of the injury report according to Ian Rapoport.
Safety Jordan Poyer is also trending in the right direction after being a full participant in practice on Friday. But, unlike Allen, he remains on the injury report, listed as questionable.
Allen has been dealing with an elbow injury that occurred near the end of the team’s Week 9 loss to the New York Jets. He looked no worse for the wear last week against the Minnesota Vikings, completing 29-of-43 pass attempts for 330 yards and one touchdown. He also ran the ball six times for 84 yards, but his three turnovers, two interceptions and one fumble, ultimately cost the team.
Things always seemed to be trending toward Allen playing as he wasn’t limited in the throws that he could make last week. The game plan has not had to be adjusted, but what the team needs to figure out is how to cut down on his turnovers.
Buffalo has now lost two in a row heading into their matchup this weekend with the Cleveland Browns. Allen has now thrown multiple interceptions in three straight games, a streak that needs to come to an end for the Bills to get things back on track.
