The Bills are having a season to remember this time around. They have truly developed into a formidable outfit playing under head coach Sean McDermott over the last three years. Along with Allen, the Bills also have some individual stars in the form of Stefon Diggs, Devin Singletary, Cole Beasley, Zack Moss and Tre’Davious White.

Their 10-3 record can be bettered in the coming weeks. The Bills play AFC East opponents New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins over the next two weeks. A win against both these teams in the coming weeks might help them get a better matchup in the post-season. They must definitely aim high, but is the Super Bowl still out of their reach? Josh Allen opines otherwise.
