Bills quarterback Josh Allen has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 15. This is the fourth time this season that Allen has won the award and the sixth time in his career. His great performance over the Broncos helped the Bills clinch the AFC East for the first time in 25 years. The quarterback finished the game completing 28 of his 40 attempted passes for 359 yards and four total touchdowns. Allen previously won the award following a Week 2 win at Miami, after a Week 9 win vs. Seattle, and after a Week 13 win vs. San Francisco.

Against the Broncos last Saturday, Allen threw his 60th passing touchdown in his 42nd career game. He joined Cam Newton & Daunte Culpepper as the only players in NFL history with 60+ pass TD and 20+ rush TD in their first 45 career games.
Josh Allen has thrown for 4,000 passing yards so far this season. That is second-most in a single season in Bills franchise history, and he needs 360 passing yards to establish a new team record (4,359 by Drew Bledsoe in 2002). Allen is also four touchdown passes away from setting another franchise record for most touchdown passes in a single season. He is currently behind Jim Kelly who threw 33 touchdowns in 1991.
