Josh Allen named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

When Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott told his second-year quarterback Josh Allen to play “fearless”, the signal-caller not only listened, he responded with arguably his best game as a professional.

After completing nearly 64 percent of his passes (21 of 33) while throwing for 256 yards with three touchdown passes, and adding 56 rushing yards with a rushing TD, Allen helped the Bills (7-3) roll to a 37-20 win over the Miami Dolphins (2-8) in Week 11.

Allen, who made smart reads and accurate throws while directing an up-tempo offense that moved the ball at will against the Dolphins, was honored Wednesday as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
