Buffalo Bills: 3 reasons Josh Allen will make the Pro Bowl in 2020
By Thomas Gore
Josh Allen is entering his third year as the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback. As the new season arrives, all the pieces seem to be in place for the young signal caller to make a run at some post season honors.
The third year is often when many quarterbacks either sink or swim in the NFL. Two seasons into his NFL career, Josh Allen has proven that he is one of the most competitive quarterbacks in the league, even if he does not have the stats to back it up.
