Josh Allen does not shy away from the bright lights

One of the great things about Josh Allen, and why the Buffalo Bills are going to be successful for years to come, is that he does not shy away from the bright lights. Time and time again this past season, when Buffalo had big games, either in front of a national audience or playing for the division or in the playoffs, Josh Allen would seemingly have his best games.

In the two primetime games against the Chiefs and Titans early in the season, Allen had over 300 passing yards each game with six passing touchdowns and one interception. Then in Week 16, Buffalo traveled to New England to play the Patriots for the AFC East division title and he would throw for over 300 yards with three passing touchdowns and no interceptions.

In the two playoff games though, Josh Allen brought it to another level with what is described as a ‘perfect game’ in the NFL as the Bills didn’t punt or turn the ball over to beat the New England Patriots.

Then the next week against the Chiefs, Allen had 329 passing yards with four touchdowns (including two in the final two minutes of the game). He would finish the playoffs this past season with only 14 incompletions while throwing nine touchdowns with no interceptions.

It is pretty clear after this season that there is not a moment too big for Josh Allen.
