Josh Allen is the AFC offensive player of the week

One of the questions facing the Bills heading into the 2020 season was whether quarterback Josh Allen would take a step forward in his third year in the NFL.

The answer has been a resounding yes. Allen’s numbers are up across the board and he’s already set single-season bests for passing yards and touchdowns.

If he keeps playing the way he did against the 49ers on Monday night, Allen will obliterate his previous marks. Allen was 32-of-40 for 375 yards and four touchdowns in the 34-24 victory.

It was the third four-touchdown game of the year for Allen and he was named the AFC’s offensive player of the week on Wednesday. It’s the third time that Allen has received the honor this season and the fifth time that he’s gotten it since joining the Bills as a 2018 first-round pick.

  1. The Bills have finally got their guy. Changing of the guard in the AFC East. Fans have waited a long time for this.

  2. I think he is in the race for MVP – I would guess he is at #3 right now? Mahomes, Big Ben and I think I would take him over Wilson right now.

  3. Baker mayfield really would of been the better choice. The brown’s played against a top notch opponent with a winning record. The 49’s on the other hand? No bosa, kittle, Garoppolo just to name a few.

  4. Keep it coming Josh. If you (23 yrs old) play as long as Brady(43 yrs old), Buffalo will be a contender for many years to come.

  5. Allen is burying his doubters on his path to becoming Buffalo’s first true franchise QB since HOF’er Jim Kelly.

  6. Josh had a great game. But this week’s award should have gone to Waller, the TE for the Raiders; 13Rec /200 Yds/ 2 TD’s.

    as long as he signs a reasonable second contract like Brady did (and lets the owner pay him the rest under the table like Brady also did) so they can afford his supporting cast!

    49ers are currently the 13th ranked defense. Titans are 25th. They say stats don’t tell the whole story, but injury reports tell even less of it

    Allen should give that trophy to Diggs.

    Why not Beasley? He had a better game than Diggs

  10. Allen should give that trophy to Diggs.

    Really?
    Not sure why Diggs is getting all the accolades there. YES, he has greatly helped improve the receiving core and demands double coverage.

    But almost EVERY time I turn on the Bills game and watch it, it’s Beasley making the great grabs, being looked at in the clutch for the first down, and having the bigger games. 66 for 797. Not bad.

    Victim of his team’s success in the first half, they only had him throw eight times in the second (5/8 for 38). They both had great games with four pass tds but allen had more yards.

  12. As a Steelers fan, I’m really looking forward to the Steelers/Bills game. Josh Allen is a great QB. The Steelers and offensive coaching should be thoroughly embarrassed, by their lack of intensity/effort on offense, especially these last few games. If they can’t perform any better this week, they will get their second loss. The defense can’t bail you out week after week.

    While no team is immune to some players not giving maximum effort because they think the opponent is inferior, the Steelers have made it an artform. Well, this week, all will be revealed, the Bills are a great team, nothing less than maximum effort will win the game for either team.

  13. I really hope Josh improves soon! Otherwise we’re drafting another QB. Can’t teach accuracy and he’s a turnover machine, particularly in the redzone! Steve C was right all along. /S

  14. The Bills have done an excellent job surrounding Josh Allen with good skill players. He also seems to be humble and coachable unlike Carson Wentz. As a Pats fan, I hope Josh Allen gets a huge contract and then his play regresses. Anyway, full credit to him and the Bills, they deserve to win the AFCE.

  15. Meanwhile Baker did all that in just the first half. Had they not called off the dogs he probably would’ve had 450 yards and at least 5 TDs.

  16. The thing is, as much praise as Allen is getting, he still has a LOT of work to do. And with the way he works, hes going to get better

  17. Josh had a great game. But this week’s award should have gone to Waller, the TE for the Raiders; 13Rec /200 Yds/ 2 TD’s.

    NOBODY mentioned in these comments attained a record performance that only 3 others have in the entire history of the NFL! This is a stupid choice to give this to the QB.. what Waller did doesn’t even happen ONCE in a season!!! QB’s throw for 400 all the time througout the season..

    just shows that those that chose these players really just don’t have a clue about a special performance in football.

    either that, or its more of the slight to the raiders from the NFL! which is of course what it is, and for a long time, expected…same crap, different day.
