Josh Allen was definitely playing his best football of the season in the playoffs.
Now that the Super Bowl is over, NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal released his final 2021 quarterbacks' rankings list. He placed Buffalo's QB1 No. 3 on the list behind only Tom Brady (1) and Aaron Rodgers (2). Check out his assessment of Allen's season below.
No. 3 | Josh Allen | Buffalo Bills | Year 4
2021 stats: 19 games | 64.5 pct | 5,044 pass yds | 7.1 ypa | 45 pass TD | 15 INT | 897 rush yds | 6 rush TD | 9 fumbles
2020 final ranking: 5 | 2019:18 | 2018:32
I will go to my grave believing the 2021 Bills would have won the Super Bowl if they'd won the coin tossin Kansas City. That's mostly because Josh Allen was playing quarterback at a level in those two playoff games I've never seen before. Combine those outings with hisWeek 14 comeback effortagainst the Bucs and hisWeek 16 destruction of the Patriots, and it's clear that Allen's highs this season were higher than anyone else's. Backing up his breakout 2020 season in this fashion was incredibly impressive.
