In historic fashion, Sean McDermott’s Buffalo Bills bagged the AFC East division crown with a comprehensive 26-15 win over Ben Roethlisberger-led Pittsburgh Steelers. This was their first division win since 1995. A major reason behind their dominance in 2020 is the emergence of third-year quarterback Josh Allen.

Josh Allen reveals the role his family played in his NFL career

On a recent segment of the Bill Pod squad, promising young quarterback Josh Allen spoke about his rise to prominence in recent years.

“I feel like I had the best family growing up, you know, the relationships that I had with my siblings is unbreakable. Seeing how hard my dad worked each and every day to provide for his family, that’s something I’ll never forget…something that I’ll cherish forever. Just the way he raised me and he was able to show me how to be a ‘real man’.”

The young quarterback further added that it was his family who deserves credit for his ‘natural’ leadership skills.

“Being a quarterback in the NFL is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to be…I don’t know if it comes naturally to me, I feel it does, I just want to go out there and be the best version of me, the best quarterback that I could be for this (Buffalo Bills) team and show the guys how much I love them through my play,” Allen said earlier this week.

The Bills can afford to relax after already winning their division. But all eyes will be on Allen in the post-season as the Bills aim for glory in 2020.
