Buffalo Bills: Quarterback Room Sans Josh Allen
Kyle Allen and Shane Buechele are the other quarterbacks on the roster. Allen is one of the better backups in the NFL, having thrown 26 touchdowns against 21 interceptions in his six-year career. However, he threw for just 416 yards and two touchdowns against four picks in two starts with the Houston Texans in 2022.
Meanwhile, Buechele, an undrafted free agent in 2021, is in his first year with the Bills. However, he has not played in a regular season game. The 25-year-old went 29-of-45 for 347 yards and three scores against three picks in the preseason.
