Josh Allen Named AFC Offensive Player Of The Week
Josh Allen's development has been on the minds of many Bills fans this year, but if the last two weeks are any indication, he is developing just fine.
Allen has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week this week.
It would be kind of hard not to. He's leading the NFL in passing yards after his incredible performance against Miami last week.
He threw for 417 yards and 4 touchdowns with 0 interceptions- somehow it's something that hasn't been done by a quarterback in the Buffalo Bills organization ever. He now has over 700 yards passing in just two weeks.
This is the third time that Josh Allen has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week. The craziest thing about it is that every time he's won the honor, it's come at the expense of the Miami Dolphins.
It helps to have monster receivers that can stretch the field. When there are multiple threats, it's hard for a defense to focus on just one player and shut them down. The addition of Stefon Diggs to this offense cannot be understated. It has not only given Allen an additional target, but has taken pressure off of last year's #1 receiver John Brown. That's helped his game too.
The 2-0 Bills will come back home this week to take on the 2-0 Los Angeles Rams. It's a test that many people say will prove how good the Bills really are. Yes, they've beaten the Jets and the Dolphins, but what about a team like the Rams.
Are they up to the challenge? We will find out Sunday afternoon at 1pm.
