Josh Allen led the Buffalo Bills to their sixth win of the season as they defeated the Green Bay Packers 27-17. Many predicted the game to be one-sided, but the Packers were able to keep the game within their reach.
Allen finished the game with 218 passing yards and had two touchdown passes but threw two interceptions in the process as well. The Bills quarterback also rushed for 49 yards and made a strong push towards claiming the first MVP award of his career.
Despite the Bills' win against the Packers, Colin Cowherd found a glaring issue that could prevent them from winning the Super Bowl. Here's what he said on the Colin Cowherd podcast:
"They are completely, utterly dependent on the greatness of Josh Allen. We have a defensive head coach Sean McDermott, who's certainly capable."
Colin Cowherd added,
"Five years no running game. Kyle Shanahan could develop that thing during an OTA, they have no run game. This is going to cost them the Super Bowl. Buffalo cannot run the ball. They just need Josh Allen to be great..."
David Singletary had 14 rushing attempts in the game against the Packers in which he rushed for 67 yards, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. The Bills do have a great passing game, but their lack of running game can sometimes cause them problems if Josh Allen is not playing well.
There have been multiple reports about the Bills being in the market for a running back in recent weeks. It will be interesting to see if they can land someone before the trade deadline.
Josh Allen would love to have a running back like Alvin Kamara on his team
The Buffalo Bills are being continuously linked to New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, and he could prove to be a big addition. Last night against the Las Vegas Raiders, Kamara scored three touchdowns.
The Saints are listening to offers for Kamara and are expecting an offer similar to what the Carolina Panthers got for Christian McCaffrey. It is unlikely that the Saints will get a similar package, but the running back could make a huge difference for the Bills.
Josh Allen would benefit from the addition of Alvin Kamara, as it would allow him to rush less and give him more options in the passing game. With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Bills need to act quickly if they want to add a quality running back to their team.
