The Buffalo Bills are coming off a less-than-stellar performance, as the team struggled to get the best of one of the worst teams in the league in Week 6 while playing on their home field of Highmark Stadium.
The New York Giants gave Josh Allen and company all they could handle last week, with the Bills offense virtually disappearing during the first half against the team’s former offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll.
Buffalo was down 6-0 to the lowly Giants in Week 6 until the fourth quarter when Allen started to find some momentum and threw for two touchdowns, which ultimately turned out to be the difference in the game.
Although the Bills were able to get the win over Daboll’s squad, the team’s offensive struggles were concerning, but now it has come to light that Allen was dealing with a shoulder injury.
However, it doesn’t appear to be a problem for the superstar quarterback moving forward, as he appears ready to take on the division-rival New England Patriots this weekend, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Obviously, it’s a good sign that Allen is ready to get back on the field, but it is a bit concerning that he might be dealing with something that can hinder his play moving forward.
Fortunately for the Bills, the Patriots don’t pose the kind of threat they used to, with Bill Belichick and company having their worst season in recent memory.
Even with Allen potentially being banged up coming into this AFC East showdown, the Bills should come out on top with relative ease this weekend.NEXT: Nick Wright Explains Why He Doesn't Trust 1 AFC Contender
