It was the most heartbreaking way for Buffalo Bills fans to lose a game. The Bills lost 42-36 to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game, in what many fans claim to be the greatest NFL playoff game in history.
There are a ton of different layers that fans and analysts sort through, and we can get to that later, but the one important (long-term) thing fans can take away is that Josh Allen is one of the top two quarterbacks. in the NFL. The other, of course, being Patrick Mahomes.
But Josh Allen somehow surpassed his all-time perfect performance last week against the New England Patriots.
Allen completed 27 of 37 passes for 329 yards and 4 touchdowns. Allen led two seemingly winning drives late in the 4th quarter, including a 4th and 13 touchdown passes to Gabriel Davis and an insane 2-point conversion to Stefon Diggs.
Allen also had a long touchdown pass to Davis to give the Bills a 36-33 lead with 13 seconds left.
Allen has 771 total yards, threw for 9 touchdowns, and had just 14 total misses. Allen had a total quarterback rating near 150 and had no turnovers, in addition to scoring 83 points overall.
Allen’s numbers mean he just had the longest two-game streak of any quarterback in NFL history, with the only one in the same company being opposing quarterback Mahomes.
It was the worst feeling I’ve had as a Buffalo sports fan in years. In fact, it’s probably the worst feeling I’ve had since Game 7 of the 2006 Eastern Conference Finals between the Buffalo Sabers and the Carolina Hurricanes.
Josh Allen is the most gifted quarterback we’ve ever seen in the NFL. He’s got one of the strongest arms on the planet, is a huge threat at heading the ball, can diagnose defenses as good as anyone, and shows he’s committed to the biggest games and the biggest times.
It’s a shame he didn’t win that match, because he couldn’t have played better.
