The Buffalo Bills hosted divisional rivals, Miami Dolphins, for a wild-card round game. The Bisons finished the season as the second seed in the AFC after the unfortunate situation surrounding Damar Hamlin. However, the team remained strong favorites to brush past the 7th seed, the Dolphins, and qualify for the Divisional Round. The team started strong with Josh Allen and the offense, looking extremely dangerous for any defense.

The Bills’ 7th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft has been an important factor in turning their fortunes around for the past couple of years. Impressing the fans with his performance and his humble persona off the field, Allen has become quite a fan favorite. On the other hand, lately, the 26-year-old has somehow landed in trouble with his behavior on the field.
