Beyond the Playbook: Rookie quarterbacks to meet Sunday

Playbook_0.jpg

It's the first of what many fans hope will be many meetings between quarterbacks Josh Allen and Sam Darnold. The rookies are scheduled to face each other for the first time this Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the New York Jets. As analyst Matt Sabuda points out, Darnold has stumbled since a strong start to his first NFL season. For Allen, it's been a different story. His mixed start to the year included some awful performances, but Allen's play in the last two weeks compares favorably to some of the league's best quarterbacks.
