Quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs are the Buffalo Bills’ preeminent duo.
With their first AFC East crown since 1995, Allen and Diggs are helping Buffalo’s franchise circle the wagons once again. Currently 12-3 with one remaining regular-season game against their divisional rival Miami Dolphins at home in Orchard Park, NY, on Sunday, the Bills can clinch the No. 2-seed in the AFC playoffs with a victory.
The Bills Mafia will be allowed to impact Buffalo’s NFL wild-card round game next week as the state of New York has approved 6,772 fans (pending negative COVID-19 testing) to be in attendance. Yes, the Bills will be hosting a playoff game for the first time in 25 years. Finally.

Look no further than Mr. Allen and Mr. Diggs as the primary instigators for Buffalo’s 2020-21 NFL season success. Solid in the trenches and all over the field, the Bills don’t tick without Josh and Stefon at the forefront.
Just 24-years-old out of the University of Wyoming, Allen was selected No. 7-overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. Now, the mountainous 6-foot-5 and 237 pound QB has carved his path with a 2020 Pro Bowl nod.
Mr. Allen’s career statistics have him slinging the pigskin for 9,483 total yards and 64 touchdowns compared to 30 interceptions. Not bad for a young pup who’s overtaken the title of Buffalo’s franchise QB. Athletically gifted with running ability as well, Josh has compiled 1,559 yards on the ground for an additional 25 trips to the heezy (TDs).
Goodness, gracious. This kid’s tremendous legs and mammoth arm have all of Bills Mafia giddy with glee.
Heck, when I watch him operate the Bills’ offense, I’m sometimes left in awe with my mouth wide open with amazement. He’s that good.
In the pocket, sliding to his left, or rolling out to his right, Mr. Allen is simply lethal with the pigskin flying from his right hand. Every throw. Every arm angle. Limitless strength.
Legendary Dallas Cowboys’ Hall of Fame QB and now NFL on Fox color commentator, Troy Aikman, described Allen’s arm strength earlier in the season. Witnessing Mr. Allen spin the football, Aikman says that Josh has the strongest arm he’s ever seen. If that’s not saying something, I don’t know what is.
In fact, Aikman recounted that he once watched Allen hurl the pigskin an insane 85 yards in the air. Wow.
During his 2020-21 campaign with Week 17 still on the calendar, Josh Allen has thrown for a ridiculous 4,320 yards (third in the NFL), 34 TDs (fifth), and has established a QBR (total quarterback rating) of 81.6 (third). In doing so, Allen now has a firm grasp on three Bills’ franchise records. Most completions, most TDs flung, most 300-yard passing games (eight). Unreal, my friends.
How UNBELIEVEABLE has Josh Allen been this season?

Waiting on Mr. Allen’s pigskin passes is Stefon Diggs. After joining Buffalo in the offseason via a trade from the Minnesota Vikings, Diggs has done nothing except exceed expectations. The 6-foot-0 and 191-pounder from the University of Maryland permeates greatness.

Mr. Diggs has snared 120 footballs for an extraordinary 1,459 yards. Both stats rank first in the NFL amongst WRs, and his yardage total has set yet another Buffalo franchise record. Diggs now has the most receiving yards all-time in a single-season for the Bills.
This is a franchise that’s had the likes of otherworldly wideouts, James Lofton and Andre Reed. Well, Stefon has bested both of them.
Gorgeously crisp route running, superb speed, baby-soft hands, excitable personality. Mr. Diggs most definitely possesses all of these attributes, and then some. Right now, Allen and Diggs are an inseparable duo that feed off of one another. A destructive force to be reckoned with.
Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs have the Bills’ circling the wagons en route to a playoff run. A run that has the potential to take these Bills to their fifth Super Bowl in team history. In the AFC East, it’s goodbye New England Patriots, hello Buffalo Bills.
Until next week, be smart, stay safe, and stay healthy. Happy New Year.
