For the second time this season, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after a career performance against the Miami Dolphins Sunday.

Allen now has 12 Player of the Week awards under his belt, the most in team history.

Achieving a perfect passer rating for the first time in his career, Allen completed 21 of his 25 passing attempts for 320 yards and four touchdowns. He added a touchdown run late in the game.

Allen found wide receiver Stefon Diggs six times in the game, racking up 120 yards and three touchdowns as the connection between the two remains one of the best in the league.

"Josh and his teammates went out there and executed at a high level and that's from being locked in during the week, having those key conversations that you need to have during the week, that set up the proper detail for the execution that's needed on Sunday," said Head Coach Sean McDermott after Sunday's game.

Allen's 84% completion percentage set a franchise record with the highest such percentage in a single game and his perfect passer rating marked only the second recorded in team history (Doug Flutie at Seattle, Dec. 23, 2000).

The 27-year-old was careful with the ball in his hands, completing his second game this season without an interception, but still made some magic happen when he needed to.

Halfway through the third quarter, Allen climbed a collapsing pocket before rolling right and tossing a ball to running back James Cook as the Miami pass rush closed in.

After the game, Allen was quick to emphasize that, despite playing nearly perfect, the team was focused on learning from the good and bad from Week 4.

"I still think there's some things we can clean up," Allen said. "As good as it looked out there, film is never as bad, it's never as good as you think it's going to look. A lot to learn from and we'll get in there tomorrow and focus on cleaning things up and turn our focus to a really good Jacksonville team."

The Bills will travel to London Thursday evening, where they will prepare for their Sunday morning match-up against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
