This season hasn’t necessarily gone as well as Josh Allen or the Buffalo Bills would have liked and the team’s starting quarterback has struggled particularly over the past three weeks. However, he is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league and that was notable in the first release of Pro Bowl vote totals.

On Wednesday, the NFL announced vote totals by fans and Josh Allen currently leads all AFC quarterbacks with 60,443. However, he is well behind some other players including Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, who leads all players among fan voting with 81,078.

The Bills quarterback also was the only player on the Buffalo Bills who is currently leading the fan voting at his respective position. This was surprising with players like Jordan Poyer, Tyler Bass, and Dawson Knox having the seasons they are.

Josh Allen still ranks in the Top 10 in most statistical categories

Even with the recent struggles, Josh Allen is still putting together a good season overall. He currently ranks eighth in passing yards per game (281.1), eighth in passing touchdowns (21), ninth in Adjusted QB Rating (58.7). He also is averaging 5.8 yards per rushing attempt, his highest total in the past three seasons, along with three rushing touchdowns.

The Buffalo Bills quarterback recently though hasn’t been very consistent. It started in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with 264 passing yards, no touchdowns, and three turnovers followed up by an impressive 366 passing yards, two touchdowns, one interception performance against the New York Jets.

This past week, Allen once again struggled with only 209 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and two interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts.

Josh Allen has a great chance to turn things around in front of a national audience on Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints. If he plays well, it will help him hold on to that top spot among AFC quarterbacks.
