Getting Kincaid more touches — especially with Dawson Knox on injured reserve — will help balance out the Bills’ offense.
The rookie wasn’t the only one having a big night. Sophomore Khalil Shakir had a career high with six catches for 92 yards, and Gabe Davis, the No. Allen noted that getting Davis more involved in the short game, as opposed to deep shots, helped diversify the offense.
“It’s hard to always throw it down the field to a certain guy, and I think it’s hard for him, too,” Allen said, via the Democrat & Chronicle . “So to develop some of that underneath and allow him to put the ball in his hands and make some plays, I think that’s going to open up some other things again.” I thought (OC Ken) Dorsey did a great job of giving us familiar stuff.”
Stefon Diggs still hit his targets, going nine of 12 for 70 yards, but it wasn’t a one-man show like it has been at times this season. When Allen spreads the ball like he did Thursday, the Bills’ offense is much more dangerous to defend than when he’s pressuring Diggs.
The key to Buffalo moving forward is getting stability from Kincaid, Shakir and Davis, and Allen continues to trust them to play.
