Should either quarterback go down with an injury in the game, either backup would immediately become the central figure of this matchup. Between the Bengals and Rams’ No. 2s, to me, Allen has more potential to steer his team to victory. Sorry John Wolford, who hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since was at Wake Forest. Allen has been in some pressure moments since leaving Arkansas. He was a third-stringer, like Burrow, for his first three years of his NFL career behind such lofty talents like Blake Bortles and Sean Mannion. Gross. Allen was a Ram for two seasons when the team started Jared Goff. Allen called the wrong side of the coin to start overtime of the AFC Championship game against Kansas City. It didn’t matter though.

After one season in Denver, Allen is trying to break into an NFL starting role with the Bengals, having thrown 10 career touchdown passes and six interceptions. He’s had limited playing time this season with the development of Burrow. But he did get to shine in parts at the end of 2020 season, after Burrow’s rookie season ended with injury in November. His best performance was against the Texans, throwing for 371 yards and two touchdowns. Allen did also post the NFL’s most recent passer rating of zero, doing so against Baltimore in Jan. 2021, completing 21 of 48 attempts. However, he has the best skill-set of non-starting-quarterbacks who will be on the field at SoFi Stadium on Sunday.
