Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for December, the NFL announced Thursday.
Allen, who also won the player of the month award in September, joins Thurman Thomas (1991) and Bruce Smith (1996) as the only Bills to win this award twice in one season.
Allen passed completed 129 of 184 passes (70.11 percent) for 1,516 yards, 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions during five games since the beginning of December, all Bills victories. He also rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns.
The incredible run put a bow on a season that saw Allen set Bills single-season records in virtually every passing category, including completions (396), completion percentage (69.2), passing touchdowns (37), total touchdowns (46), passing yards (4,544), and 300-yard passing games (8).
Allen also became the first player in NFL history with 4,500-plus passing yards, 35-plus passing touchdowns, and five-plus rushing touchdowns in a single season.
The numbers have warranted MVP consideration from national media alongside Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Allen was previously named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September. He has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week four times this season, a franchise record.
