Josh Allen’s career interception rate is higher than Patrick Mahomes
Josh Allen’s 2023 season didn’t start as expected.
The Buffalo Bills faced a heavy loss against the New York Jets in the season opener match. Legendary quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury.
The Bills’ star quarterback Josh Allen threw three interceptions in the 22-16 loss to the Jets. Despite the difficult performance, offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey has confidence in Allen.
Of course, the two-time Pro Bowler’s Allen performance on Monday was not as he was known to perform. But coach Dorsey doesn’t think there’s cause for panic.

“At the end of the day, I have a ton of trust in Josh Allen.”
Dorsey adds that Allen wouldn’t be at this point in his career if this was a consistent thing, and that he wins more games than he loses. #BillsMafia
“He’s done a really good job,” Dorsey said of Allen, per NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano. “I don’t think you get to the point in his career, and I don’t think you get to as many games as he’s won as a starter if this were something that happens every single game.”
Dorsey added that “some of the best quarterbacks of all time have had multiple-interception games.”

"Some of the best quarterbacks of all time have had multiple-interception games."
Coach Dorsey is confident that Josh Allen will make a great comeback.
Allen’s 2.4 career interception rate is higher than big quarterbacks such as Joe Burrow (2.0), Justin Herbert (1.8), and Patrick Mahomes (1.6).
Additionally, Allen threw for at least 35 touchdowns in each of his last three seasons for the three-time division champions. He finished third in last season’s MVP voting after leading the Bills to a 13–3 record.
Allen can make an elite comeback when the Bills will be facing the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday. Wish Josh Allen good luck.
