Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen
Josh Allen has to be going into this offseason wondering what in the world he has to do to get the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl.
After his MVP-caliber season in 2020, Allen followed up with a Herculean performance in 2021, putting the Bills on his back down the stretch of the season and making every possible play in the 2021 playoffs against the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round.
Late in the fourth quarter, Allen engineered a miraculous drive to answer a score by the Kansas City Chiefs, throwing a dart of a touchdown pass to Gabriel Davis and giving the Bills a three-point lead with 13 seconds to play and a trip to the AFC Championship within reach.
Unfortunately, Patrick Mahomes happened on the other side.
Allen didn’t get to touch the ball again in overtime after Mahomes and the Chiefs tied things up to end regulation, and the Bills were sent home.
Again, there’s not much more Allen can do.
The Bills have their MVP candidate locked in to a long-term contract and he will have to continue to do all he can to help Buffalo keep up with the Mahomes’ in the AFC.
