The Buffalo Bills are 3-0 and their young franchise QB Josh Allen is on fire – so far in three games completing 81 passes for 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns with just one interception – a leader with the proven ability to march his team down the field at the last minute for the win like he did in Week 3 against the resurging LA Rams.
The Las Vegas Raiders let their Week 3 matchup with the New England Patriots get away from them, but up until then, they looked like a young but competent unit led by the veteran Pro Bowl quarterback Derek Carr, who (most times) throws as accurately as anybody.
These two AFC teams have played each other 41 times overall (including 2 postseason games), with the Las Vegas Raiders winning 21 of those matchups and the Buffalo Bills winning 20 of the games.
Can Bills QB Josh Allen Continue His Upward Development?
Take a look at Josh Allen’s development since his rookie season – his accuracy alone has improved by leaps and bounds, with a rookie completion percentage of 52.8 growing last season into 58.8 and now after three weeks of play it is at an impressive 71.1.
In other words, the kid’s getting more accurate as a passer, and that seems to be translating into more wins as a starter, including an impressive comeback victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3 who had seemed like they had taken back over the game.
For the last two weeks, Allen has thrown for eight touchdowns with just one interception, and that is exactly the kind of dependability that HC Sean McDermott and OC Brian Daboll are counting on and building the team’s offense around.

Can Raiders QB Derek Carr Find Consistency in His Play?
Despite losing to the Patriots in Week 3, Raiders QB Derek Carr completed three-fourths of his passes, his completion percentage an impressive 75 with two touchdown passes while his interception total for 2020 is an impressive goose egg.
Not his fault the Raiders defense couldn’t stop the Patriots run game featuring Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead who combined for 15 carries for 166 yards and 2 touchdowns, which was enough offense to outscore Las Vegas.
Carr spread the love in Week 3, completing nine different targets and since most of his team is young, they will benefit from his consistency as the season progresses.

Bills Key Player: (WR) John Brown
In the first two games of the 2020 season, Bills WR John Brown was targeted 16 times and caught 10 of those passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns, excellent production from the team’s star receiver.
Last week, though, Brown was forced out of the game with a calf injury and had no production during that matchup, soft tissue damage that has him listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Raiders.
Brown is an important target for Bills QB Josh Allen, so his health will be good news for the team, but at the very least Buffalo has plenty of other worthy targets, like slot receiver Cole Beasley and arguably one of the best deep route runners in the league Stefon Diggs.
Raiders Key Player: (TE) Darren Waller
Raiders tight end Darren Waller is turning heads with his fantastic play lately, the 28-year old with an interesting story that includes plenty of dramatic ups and downs.
Waller is currently on an “up,” and this season has proven himself a decent blocker and an even better receiver, so far posting 20 catches for 159 yards and a touchdown for the 2020 season.
That’s a good sign following the excellent 2019 Waller registered, with 90 catches for 1145 yards and 3 touchdowns, numbers the team would gladly take in 2020 (with a few more end zone visits thrown in).
