Josh Allen couldn’t deliver on the big stage Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year quarterback didn’t get much help, either. Drops were a huge issue for the offense in the second half of a 24-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens at New Era Field. There were at least four of them, and maybe more depending on your definition.

ARLINGTON, Texas – Just call it the Cole Beasley Revenge Game. The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver did his best all week to downplay his return to Dallas, saying that it was simply the next game on the schedule.
