Josh Allen passes Drew Bledsoe on Buffalo Bills career passing yards list

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is climbing the team’s passing record books. Not only did he become the fastest Bills QB to 10,000 yards on Sunday, he passed Drew Bledsoe on the team’s all-time passing list.

Bledsoe had 10,151 of his 44,611 passing yards as a member of the Bills. Allen finished the day against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 with 10,156 yards passing.

Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly leads the way with 35,467 passing yards in a Bills uniform. He did that over 160 games and Allen currently sits at 46 games, so it’s gonna be a while. Joe Ferguson is second with 27,590 yards while Jack Kemp is third at 15,134 yards. If Allen averages more than 333 yards per game the rest of the season, he would pass Kemp this year into third. It’s more likely he will finish the season fourth. Ryan Fitzpatrick has 11,654 yards. Allen should be able to pass him in November.

Allen passed Bledsoe despite playing in two fewer games, completing 22 fewer passes on 94 fewer attempts, and with a better completion percentage. He also has 15 more touchdowns and 11 fewer interceptions than Beldsoe’s career with Buffalo.
