Josh Allen is having a tough day. 


Starting with some undeniable disrespect from wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin during pre-game warmups, but Allen's Sunday just got a lot worse.


Just as the Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback was gaining some momentum in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, Allen suffered an apparent hand injury and left the game. 

Bills backup quarterback Nathan Peterman came in for Allen after exiting the game in the third quarter, and Peterman made an instant impact with a touchdown pass in his first six attempts to go 4-for-6 in his first drive and give the Bills a 13-10 lead. 

Then with the game tied, Peterman decided to throw a horrendous pick-six to essentially end the game with less than two minutes left. He threw another one with less than a minute remaining to put the game completely on ice. 

Unless you're playing in a dual-quarterback fantasy league, it's unlikely that Allen's absence is affecting your fantasy outcome all that much, if at all. But we'll just have to wait and see how severely his hand was injured before jumping to any serious conclusions.
