The Josh Allen for MVP talk is likely done.....until next season

Josh Allen completed only 15 passes out of 30 attempts, for 169 yards and zero touchdowns. He did add two more rushing touchdowns, bringing his season total to 15. He still leads the league with 42 total touchdowns, but Lamar Jackson went off today against the average at best, Dolphins' defense. Jackson was 18 of 21, 321 yards passing, and five touchdown passes. He also added 35 yards rushing.

This was a statement performance from Jackson and, rightfully so, should seal his second league MVP. But don't worry Bills Mafia, Buffalo has always done well against Jackson and until the Ravens prove it in the playoffs, they have shown to be a one-and-done in most seasons. Jackson has just one career post-season win. I will say this though, this may be the most talent Jackson has had around him on the offensive side of the ball.

The NFL Draft is four months away
