CBS Sports has ranked Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen as the seventh-best quarterback in the NFL after six games so far this season.
Previously, Allen was ranked as their fifth-best QB after five outings.
Despite the drop, the outlet says Allen’s dip mostly had to do with outside circumstances:
Allen’s dip does come as a surprise because of that last outing. If you remove a failed QB sneak attempt, Buffalo’s QB had a heck of a stat line last week against the Tennessee Titans.
Overall, Allen was 35-for-47 passing for 353 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
It looks like that fact that the Bills did lose that game, 34-31, was an overlying factor here.
Week 6 was also the first time in Allen’s career that he threw for over 300 yards and the Bills lost.
Looking forward, Allen is likely to be a riser in the coming weeks in such a ranking. He faces a few lackluster defensive teams coming out of the bye, the Miami Dolphins.
