There isn’t anywhere for Josh Allen’s passing efficiency to go but up after last season’s performance.

Josh Allen’s 2018 Stats

  • Yards per attempt: 6.48 (28th among 29 quarterbacks with at least 10 starts)
  • QB rating: 67.9 (28th)
  • Touchdown rate: 3.1% (27th)
  • Interception rate: 3.75% (29th)
  • Completion rate: 52.8% (29th)

One of the biggest X-factors in a potential Year 2 leap for Allen is the Bills’ offseason additions at wide receiver.
