This year, after Brian Daboll left to become the head coach of the New York Giants, Allen has not had the caliber of season that many had expected, as he has an elevated number of interceptions and has been working through a right elbow injury.
Lions head coach Dan Campbell expressed that while the Bills have been known to be a passing team, the coaching staff are expecting the Bills to lean on the run at Ford Field.
"Well, they leaned on it. They leaned on it. Those backs did a good job and when you incorporate that with this quarterback it’s a whole other element," said Campbell. "And so, I know that they’ve traditionally thrown it, but we’re anticipating they’re going to try to run it. I mean, that was a good recipe for them. And so, I would think that they’ll try to do a lot of those things because they did have success against Cleveland. Now, I still say this quarterback’s obviously a huge part of everything. He is the biggest part, but I mean we’re ready for whatever they throw at us.”
