Josh Allen wins AFC Offensive Player of the Week for second consecutive week


After leading the offense to 443 total yards and three passing touchdowns in the Bills 24-20 fourth quarter comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, Bills QB Josh Allen has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 6.

This is the second consecutive week Allen has received this recognition and ninth time he's won the award in his career. Since 2018, only Allen and Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes have won the award nine times. He is the first Bills player to win the offensive award in back-to-back weeks. Only Jim Kelly (10) has won this award more than Allen in team history.

Allen currently leads the NFL in passing yards (1,980) and total touchdowns (19).

Allen completed 27 passes for 329 yards and three total touchdowns. The QB's opening TD pass was a 34-yarder to WR Gabe Davis late in the second quarter, followed by a 17-yard pass to WR Stefon Diggs and the go-ahead 14-yard pass to TE Dawson Knox in the second half. But what doesn't show up on the scoresheet is Allen's hurdle over Chiefs' Justin Reid on the game-winning drive.

Sunday marked Allen's 12th career game with 300+ passing yards and 3+ passing touchdowns, tying Jim Kelly for the most in Bills history. Allen's 17 passing touchdowns this season also marked a franchise record for the most in the first six games of a season.

Coming out of the bye week, Allen and the Bills will face the Green Bay Packers in Sunday Night Football on October 30 at 8:20 p.m.
