Joshua Patrick Allen famed as Josh Allen is an American football quarterback for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Wyoming. He was drafted by the Bills in the first round (7th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft, becoming the highest-drafted NFL player from the University of Wyoming and the highest-drafted quarterback in Bills' history. The Buffalo Bills 2019 NFL campaign came to an end on Saturday, as they blew a 16-0 lead and fell to the Houston Texans by a score of 22-19 in overtime in their Wild Card Round playoff matchup. In the loss, Allen completed 24 of his 46 passes for 264 yards, which didn’t even begin to tell the story of how poorly the second-year quarterback played. He fumbled twice and lost one, almost turned the ball over when trying to lateral it (for some inexplicable reason) late in the fourth quarter and had a couple of his passes bounce off of the hands of Texans cornerback Bradley Roby, who probably should have come away with a pair of interceptions. Allen also caught a touchdown pass. His performance against Houston exemplified his season in a nutshell, which was a year full of a whole lot of, uh, interesting moments, whether they be good or bad. He threw for 3,089 yards, 20 touchdowns, and nine picks while completing 58.8 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 85.3. He also rushed for 510 yards and nine scores, averaging 4.7 yards per carrying.
