Josh Allen again named AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week

It’s the second time this season

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was once again named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week. It’s the second time this season and fourth time in his career Allen has earned the honor.

Allen was 31-of-38 (81.6%) for 415 passing yards, three touchdown passes, and a rushing TD against the Seattle Seahawks. Throwing for 400+ yards, three TDs, and zero interceptions is a rare feat and now Allen has done it twice in one season. He’s the first player in NFL history to have multiple games in one season with that stat line.

He also earned the POTW honor following his Week 2 performance against the Miami Dolphins. He earned the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month Award in September. According to the Bills, Allen joins Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas as the only Bills to win this award twice in one season. Pretty great company.

On the other side of the ball, we thought A.J. Klein might be named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week. While he had five tackles, two sacks, four QB hurries, a forced fumble, fumble recovery, and a pass breakup, he was overlooked in favor of Tennessee Titans DT Jeffery Simmons.
