The Buffalo Bills haven’t been at their best this season, and while a lot of that had to do with Ken Dorsey’s play-calling, Josh Allen also deserves plenty of the blame.
He’s been a turnover machine this season, and it seems like his decision-making has only gotten worse as the season progresses.
However, former NFL QB Dan Orlovsky doesn’t seem to agree with that.

In his recent appearance on First Take, the former backup stated that people should also give context and talk about Allen leading the league in touchdown passes, even if he’s also the league leader in interceptions.
He also stated that just three of Allen’s interceptions have been bad decisions, adding that some of those were just basically punts on third-and-long situations that were a risk-reward kind of throw.
Orlovsky doesn’t think that Allen is making bad reads or bad decisions at the time, but the tape doesn’t exactly show that.
Allen has been careless with the football both on the ground and in the air, throwing eleven picks and losing three fumbles through ten games this season.
No one can deny that he’s one of the most gifted quarterbacks in the game; in the same sense, no one can deny that he has a turnover problem; that’s just a fact.
Allen should be able to bounce back from this even if it’s not easy.
But he needs to have a deep look in the mirror and acknowledge the fact that he needs to stop pressing and make better decisions, as you can’t always be uber-aggressive.NEXT: Analyst Says 1 AFC Team Is 'Out Of Coaches And Excuses'
