Weekly honor for Josh Allen after five-TD game

It was a no-brainer for Allen to earn the seventh AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors after directing an effective Bills offense to a 43-21 win over Washington. Allen completed 74.4 percent of his passes (32 of 43) for 358 yards with four passing TDs and one rushing score, his fifth time eclipsing 300 passing yards with four-plus passing TDs. Allen becomes just the fifth QB in NFL history to pass for 300-plus yards with four TDs in his first four years in the league.
