He has thrown for 4,500+ yards with 37 passing TDs against 10 interceptions in the regular season. His offensive partnership with WR Stefon Diggs has worked wonders for the Bills in 2020. But Andy Reid’s defense will be hard to crack.

Can the Josh Allen-led Buffalo Bills upset the defending champions on Sunday?

Nick Wright made his daily appearance on the latest segment of ESPN’s First Things First. The popular American sports talk show personality heaped praise on Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills, who have clearly surpassed expectations this season.

He said, “Listen, Buffalo Bills all year long. You’ve been saying, Josh Allen’s the real MVP, you have the real best offense in football…just go, try to outscore the chiefs.

“It’s definitely what you should do. It is definitely how you can prove me wrong…that’s definitely what you should do though, Buffalo Bills, I see no way it blows up in your face.

“So yeah, completely different game plan. I think it’ll work out brilliantly and I think it’s what they should do,” Wright said on the show.

Allen has made his way back into the NFL MVP race, currently led by Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. Allen has thrown for 530 yards with 3 passing touchdowns in 2 post-season games this year.

‘Bills Mafia’ will hope he can replicate the same when their team travels to the Arrowhead Stadium for Sunday’s AFC Championship game. You can’t afford to miss out on this one.
