Allen threw for just 179 yards in the first meeting against Miami, largely due to the game being a 35-0 blowout that didn’t require Allen to do too much. Further, the only other game over the past five weeks that Allen hasn’t this 300+ yards was the 40-0 win against the Houston Texans.
Allen should easily hit this number as long as the Dolphins are able to keep the game at least relatively close for a while. The Buffalo Bills are 14-point favorites in the matchup but as long as the game doesn’t reach a 28+-point margin, Allen should be good to clear this mark.
