Josh Allen has made a habit of passing for impressive yardage totals so far in 2020. 

Think he can do it again Sunday against the New England Patriots? Your guess could win you a prize. 

Fans who download the Bills Mobile app, presented by M&T Bank, can wager their predictions each week with "Predict the Bills," a free mobile game presented by Seneca Resorts & Casinos. 

Each week, the top three players on the season-long leaderboard (must be 21 or older and a New York State resident) will be selected to win autographed Bills gear. 

The end-of-season leader will walk away with the grand prize: an all-inclusive suite for you and 11 others at a mutually agreed upon Bills home game during the 2021-22 season.

Players will be presented with a total of 14 multiple choice questions for each game. Here is a sneak peek at one the questions for the upcoming game.

Week 8 featured question: How many total passing yards will Josh Allen accumulate?

Allen made headlines when he threw for 312 yards against the New York Jets in Week 1, making him the first Bills quarterback to reach the 300-yard mark since Tyrod Taylor in 2016.

Since then, that number has become commonplace. Allen has tossed for 300-plus yards in four of seven games this season, including a career-best 415 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3. Here is a breakdown of his yardage totals this season:

  • 100-199 yards: One time (Week 6)
  • 200-299 yards: Two times (Weeks 4 and 5)
  • 300-399 yards: Three times (Weeks 1, 2, and 7)
  • 400-499 yards: One time (Week 3)

We wrote here about how Allen adjusted to reach the 300-yard mark against the Jets last week, utilizing short passes to combat a defense that was seeking to take away big plays over the top.

The Patriots, meanwhile, have yet to allow a 300-yard passer this season. Here is a breakdown of their yardage totals against through six games:

  • 100-199 yards: Two times
  • 200-299 yards: Four times

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is revered for his ability to game plan defensively against an opponent's strength – which, in Buffalo's case, has been the passing game. That said, the Patriots have allowed more passing yards per attempt (8.6) and per completion (12.6) than any other team in the NFL.

Something's got to give. Download the Bills Mobile app to make your prediction on Sunday.
