Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen made his debut on the NFL Top 100 list earlier this year. The 24-year-old University of Wyoming graduate was ranked at #87 on the list after impressing in 2019. However, few could have predicted his rise to prominence this year.
The Californian football star is raising eyebrows across the league since Week One. Allen was instrumental as Doug Marrone’s Buffalo Bills beat Derek Carr-led Las Vegas Raiders last weekend. The young star threw for 288 yards and had two passing TDs as the Bills registered their fourth consecutive win of the 2020 NFL season.

It’s turning out to be an outstanding campaign for Buffalo Bills quarterback, Josh Allen. The youngster has been pivotal in leading his team to a 4-0 record in the opening weeks. He has thrown for 1,300+ yards with 13 TDs against just one interception. He boasts a pass completion rate of 70.9 and a passer rating of 122.7 after four games.
Here’s what Bills head coach, Doug Marrone, said about his superstar quarterback.
“This year, we’ve struggled getting to the quarterback. He’s been close a lot of times and he’s working his butt off. He’s a kid who takes a lot of pride in what he does. Also, He’s been voted a captain on our team. I don’t want to see him press too much,” Marrone told Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle.
The Bills face a tough Tennessee Titans outfit this weekend who are also unbeaten in the league. Following that, Josh Allen will face-off against rival quarterback Patrick Mahomes at the Arrowhead Stadium. Can Marrone’s boys still sustain their unbeaten record over the next two weeks?
