Ridiculous Rushes and Improbable Completions – Week 6

Big Players Make Big Plays In Big Games

Sometimes you just have to doff your cap in the direction of the opposition. They’re allowed to have good players too and they are allowed to make big plays at times.

Let’s take a look at Josh Allen for a while.

Just let that sink in for a moment. The 4 passes of the night that were least likely to be completed all went for Touchdowns. And 3 of them were by Josh Allen giving the Bills 21 of their 24 points. The Diggs and Davis ones were extremely similar in execution.
I’m not sure what else Williams could have done here other than get his head turned around and get an arm up there. #38 Sneed blitzes from his side, #22 Thornhill is drawn in by #6 McKenzie. Williams is one on one with Davis but has him pinned within a yard of the sideline. It’s a low probability throw, but Allen puts it exactly where it needed to be.
Diggs TD

On the Diggs TD, #20 Reid cheats over to the middle of the field as the ball is snapped. Williams is never more than a yard away from Diggs and only half a yard away when the catch is made. Again, get your head turned and get a hand up is all he could have done differently. Another low probability throw that was put exactly where it needed to be.

It’s not like Allen had all day to throw back there, his average Time to Throw of 2.74 seconds is pretty much what you would expect and NFL Quarterback to get.

The Chiefs do need to get more from the D line than just Chris Jones. Yet again he was the bulk of the pass rush although I suspect Clark and Karlaftis were more concerned with containing Allen in the pocket than actually pass rushing. Spags did seem to blitz quite a bit early and that’s where the pressure came from, at least in the first half of the game.

It’s still early in the season. The defence has significant room to grow and improve. The youngsters will benefit from the experience they are getting now and Spags teams have history of playing better later in the year. There are players to come back from suspension and injury. All points to consider when you think we kept this Bills offensive juggernaut to 24 points via 3 low probability throws. We’ll see them again in January…
