The quarterback's 424 passing yards mark the most a Bill has ever passed for in regulation. 98 of those yards came on a deep TD throw to WR Gabe Davis on the opening drive, tying the longest TD pass in Bills franchise history.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady and New York Jets QB Geno Smith are also nominated for Week 5's award. Allen's 400 passing yards and two passing touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins also earned him a nomination in Week 3.
