For Allen, he was too overwhelmed to even soak the moment in properly. He was excited to go to the Super Bowl. He further added that the Bills implemented their defensive game plan very well.

Allen said, “It will hit in about half an hour when guys get in their car and sit back and think about: ‘Yo, we’re two games away from the Big Show.

“We’re in the AFC Championship Game in our next game. It’s a special time to be a Buffalo Bill…The defensive game plan was executed to perfection.”

Josh Allen- Savior of the Bills

The Bills were a complete surprise during the regular season. Prior to this year, the Bills were a perennial playoff team, but couldn’t reach the Super Bowl.

Their last exciting run to the Playoffs was in 1994, which was, at the time, their 4th consecutive Super Bowl appearance, but they lost every one of those games.

Josh Allen has been excellent this year. The primary focus of the attack, Allen lead the Bills to a 13-3 record in the NFL, the best in the league behind the Kansas City Chiefs with 14-1.

The Bills were a standout team in the AFC and defeated many opponents in convincing fashion. For many analysts, the Bills were a sleeper favorite to win the Super Bowl this season.

The Buffalo Bills have the chance to return to the Super Bowl for the first time in 27 years. However, they still have to defeat a strong opponent in either Kansas or Cleveland, both of whom are capable of causing problems to Josh Allen and company.
