Josh Allen added another statistical trophy to his 2020 trophy case when he and the Buffalo Bills handily beat the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. This time he did something that only a future Hall of Famer has done in the last 70 years.

In the Bills’ third prime-time game of the season, Allen went 32 of 40 for an 80 percent completion percentage, 375 yards, four touchdowns, and a 139.1 passer rating. It was the third time this season that Allen threw for 375-plus yards, three-plus touchdowns, and had a 130-plus passer rating. Thanks to NFL Research, we know that Allen and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees are the only two quarterbacks since 1950 to put up three games like that in a single season. With four games left in the regular season, Allen may be alone at the top of the record books by the time the playoffs begin.
