This week has been one of the worst to endure as a Buffalo sports fan. There's no way to sugarcoat what happened at the end of Sunday's AFC Divisional Round game -- it flat-out felt terrible.
We all know what happened by now against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Buffalo Bills now begin the off-season with many questions left unanswered about who will return to the team for the 2022 campaign and who will not.
One player who will be back, and will be for many years to come, is Bills superstar quarterback Josh Allen.
Sunday night might have been the best example of the fact that wins are not a quarterback stat.
Allen completed 27 of 37 passes for 329 yards and 4 touchdowns, with another 68 yards rushing. He went the length of the field, not once, but twice near the end of the 4th quarter to give the Bills two go-ahead touchdown passes to Gabriel Davis.
Josh converted multiple third downs on the first drive, which went 17 plays. He also converted two 4th downs, the second coming on the 27-yard touchdown pass to Davis on 4th and 13.
We haven't even talked about the insane 2-point conversion to Stefon Diggs, or the 75-yard touchdown pass to Davis in the 3rd quarter.
The Bills may have lost, but one thing happened on Sunday...there's zero debate, Josh Allen is one of the top 2-3 quarterbacks in the NFL and one of the best players period. He's right there with Patrick Mahomes and they will be ruling the AFC Conference for the next decade.
Big Ditch Brewing Company shared a pretty incredible story this week regarding Allen. They say that vendors from all over there country have reached out to them to just tell them the Bills have the best quarterback in the NFL, and that they wish they had him on their team...
How cool is that? I've also had a ton of friends who are not from Buffalo, reach out to me through text or Twitter that Allen is amazing.
Say it often Bills Mafia, Buffalo has one of the top quarterbacks on the planet, playing for your team.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean
With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
