Josh Allen moves into fourth place for Buffalo Bills career passing yards

Allen surpasses Ryan Fitzpatrick’s total; trails only Jack Kemp, Joe Ferguson, and Jim Kelly

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen continues to climb the franchise’s leaderboard for career passing stats.

During Buffalo’s 26-11 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 8 at Highmark Stadium, Allen passed for 249 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions, as the Bills earned their seventh straight victory over the Dolphins.

When Allen found wide receiver Cole Beasley for a 20-yard completion to convert a 3rd & 11 situation midway through the fourth quarter, it gave Buffalo’s fourth-year starting signal caller 11,664 career passing yards—good enough to pass Bills fan favorite Ryan Fitzpatrick (11,654) for fourth place in Buffalo’s all-time record book.

Allen would finish the game with 11,679 yards in just 51 career games, the fewest games needed among quarterbacks with at least 11,000 passing yards in franchise history, But Allen still has a ways to go to crack the top three in Buffalo’s record books.

Jack Kemp, who played for Buffalo from 1962-1969, is third with 15,134 passing yards; Joe Ferguson, who played for the Bills from 1973-1984, sits in second place all-time with 27,590 passing yards; and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly holds the franchise record for career passing yards with 35,467 during his decorated career from 1986-1996.

Allen also ranks third in career touchdown passes (84) and completions (1,014) and slightly edges out Tyrod Taylor for highest quarterback rating (92.5) among all Buffalo quarterbacks.
