Bedard: 3 things you need to know about the Bills – It will all come down to Josh Allen

(Adam Richins for BSJ)

After watching some Bills (3-0) film, here are the three things you need to know, a few video clips and our pick for the game.

1. The Bills will sink or swim based on QB Josh Allen.

I know this isn't rocket science or great insight since most teams, including the Patriots can say that, but it's the truth. This is a good, solid football team ... outside of the quarterback. The defense is very good, fast and smart. The offensive line is OK. The plans on both sides of the ball, from offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and defensive Leslie Frazier, are well thought out and malleable depending on the opponent and the game situation. They have speed at the skill positions on offense, and the running backs are solid.

And then there's Allen, the seventh overall pick in the 2018 draft.
