The Buffalo Bills’ offense exploded for 38 points against a well-coached Steelers defense. Josh Allen was able to walk the Steelers down through the air all game with big chunk plays, doing whatever they wanted.

Josh Allen put on a clinic against the Pittsburgh Steelers, throwing for 424 yards and 4 touchdowns. With Josh Allen playing at an elite level like he did against a seasoned Steelers defense goes to show what the Bills are capable of on offense.

When Josh Allen is pushing the ball down the field as he did on the very first drive of the game, the short to intermediate game opens up, and the precision accuracy of his deep balls is just about impossible for a defensive back to cover.

The Bills had 552 total yards with Josh Allen accounting for 466 of those yards. Josh Allen was able to make incredible plays getting out of the pocket picking up key first downs with his legs with the pocket collapsed showing his dual-threat ability.

Josh Allen looks like the best quarterback in the NFL through five weeks, with the performance on Sunday against an admirable defense further cementing the praise and MVP talks he is receiving from NFL experts and media. 424 yards is a testament to show his progression as a player his work has come full circle from being drafted seventh overall by Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, who saw the potential from the very beginning.

Josh Allen had a QB rating of 134.1 and a QBR of 86.2, and he is such an invaluable piece to the Bills franchise. His performance on Sunday will give the Buffalo Bills momentum as they’re on a collision course with the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday as the best QBs and overall teams face off for a 2021 AFC Divisional Round rematch.

Josh Allen missed some throws early on with the wind being a significant factor, but he quickly adjusted and made the right decisions, methodically moving the ball down the field on another drive. Josh was aggressive in his approach to taking his shots down the field and connected twice for a huge touchdown to Gabe Davis. His one interception in the game in the endzone was costly to the drive but in the end, made no impact in the final score, that was his only sputter on the day.

Josh Allen gets an A- for his performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers
