The Bills' rollercoaster season continues, as their dominant win over the Saints on Thanksgiving night has once again reminded fans of just how good they can be. In the team's seven wins this season, they've outscored opponents 258-75, scoring 37ppg while only allowing 11ppg on defense. In the team's 4 losses, they've been outscored 68-107, scoring just 17ppg while allowing 27ppg. The Bills remain the all-time leader in Football Outsider's variance statistic, but the good news is that a pattern has emerged in Josh Allen's play.

The quick passing-game has masked the team's greatest weakness-the offensive line-and allowed Allen to spread the ball around. As teams play more man to combat the quick passes, Offensive Coordinator Brian Daboll has used designed runs to get his talented QB to the edge effectively. If Daboll can continue to mold an effective offense around his weak offensive line, the once-favorites in the AFC will be ascending in that direction once again.
