Josh Allen is the AFC offensive player of the month

The Bills went 5-0 in December and January games, and Josh Allen was a big reason why.

The signal-caller completed 70 percent of his passes for 1,516 yards with 15 touchdowns and two interceptions — good for a 117.5 passer rating. He also had 110 yards rushing and a pair of rushing touchdowns.

Now, the quarterback has been named AFC offensive player of the month.

If not for Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes so separating themselves from the pack early on, Josh Allen would likely be deeper into the MVP discussion. He ended the regular season with a 69.2 completion percentage, throwing for 4,544 yards with 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Allen was also AFC offensive player of the month in September.

He’ll try to continue his string of strong play against the Colts in this weekend’s wild-card round.

  1. Josh Allen offensive player of the month 2/4 months this ear for the AFC (Sept and Dec). Mahomes won November’s (Henry Oct) and Rodgers didn’t win that award once…..

  2. Also add 8 rushing TDs to those stats for the year. I’ve been a Bills fan since before Jim Kelly initially spurned us for the USFL. I never saw this coming in 2020. I’m just trying to enjoy the ride, but admit there’s a part of me that’s been conditioned to expect it to fall apart. But I’ll have my Bills jersey (Fred Jackson #22) on this weekend for the home playoff game.

    Go Bills!

    Maybe thats because Rodgers plays in the NFC? He just won the award for December in the NFC

  4. Either Rodgers or Allen deserve to win MVP. Peoples bias will say their guy is the only one who should win. Both make great arguments and there’s really no argument against either.
    Rodgers and Allen both set records this year of various forms. I believe Rodgers will win and while I wish Allen would, Rodgers does deserve it as well. I truly think Allen has or st least should have surpassed mahomes this year

  5. The Bills search for a franchise QB after the ’90’s run was endless. It was a hard wait.

    But worth it to finally land someone like Allen. He’s perfect for Buffalo. It’s hard to even say what his ceiling is at this point. He is going to win a lot of games for this team.

  6. Love how Buffalo is building this team.
    However….stats don’t matter now as the playoffs begin.
    Best wishes to Buffalo.
    Be safe all.

    Don’t forget Allen’s receiving TD.
