The Buffalo Bills have done something they haven’t done since 1995. With their commanding win of the Denver Broncos Saturday, the Bills are the AFC East champions. The last time the Bills won the AFC East title, quarterback Josh Allen was not even born yet. Defeating the Broncos 48-19, Buffalo executed a flawless game plan on their way to their first AFC East title in 25 years. For Bills fans, it’s definitely a long time coming. The New England Patriots have had a lock on the AFC East for the past 25 years, claiming the title 19 of those years. With the Patriots struggling this season, and with the Bills seemingly firing on all cylinders, the Bills not only locked up the AFC East title, but look like one of the favorites to make a strong playoff run.
Josh Allen Continues Impressive Play
USA Today Sports
As has been the case numerous times throughout this season, the Bills were led by quarterback Josh Allen. Allen played a stellar game passing and rushing, as he was part of four of the five Bills touchdowns on the day. Allen completed 28 of 40 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns. On the ground, Allen rushed three times for 33 years and two touchdowns. In Bills quarterback history, only Drew Bledsoe has ever been able to eclipse the 4,000 passing yard mark. Josh Allen became the second Saturday and is only 359 yards away from passing Bledsoe. Allen can also set another Bills franchise record with three more touchdown passes. He would pass Jim Kelly who holds the single season Bills franchise record of 33.
Wide Receiver Corps Continues to Shine
With Allen setting franchise records left and right, the Bills receivers are also set to make franchise history as well. Stefon Diggs caught 11 of his 13 targets for 147 yards Saturday. While Diggs didn’t find the end zone, his performance propels him to the top of the league in receptions and yards. Cole Beasley caught eight passes for 112 yards, and is only 50 yards away from the first 1,000 yard season of his career. This would give the Bills two 1,000 yard receivers since Peerless Price and Eric Moulds accomplished the feet in 2002.
