Josh Allen entered the 2021 season considered by many as one of the favorites to win the MVP award. The season hasn’t gone the way he would have hoped to the point that he wasn’t even selected to the AFC Pro Bowl team.

On Sunday, against one of the best secondaries in the NFL, the Bills quarterback showed just how ridiculous it was that he was not selected this year. He would finish the game with 314 passing yards, 64 rushing yards with three touchdowns, and no turnovers.

In a game without two of his best wide receivers, he once again put this team on his back and made crucial plays that helped secure the win for this team. There isn’t much negative to say and considering the importance of this game, this was by far his best game of the season.

Grade: A+

Running Backs

While Josh Allen once again led the team in rushing yards, Devin Singletary has emerged recently to give a spark to the position and the run game in general. He finished the game with 39 rushing yards, one rushing touchdown with five receptions for 39 yards.

The stat line won’t be anything impressive but watching that game, he was running hard and rarely going down on first contact. If he continues to produce like this, it will give the offense just enough balance for this group to remain as one of the best in the NFL.

Grade: A-
