The Buffalo Bills emerged victorious in their epic AFC East showdown against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday, toppling their rivals from the south in the snow in a 32-29 win. Stepping up huge in this Week 15 was quarterback Josh Allen, who showed off MVP caliber qualities all throughout the contest.

Allen finished the game going 25-40 through the air for 304 yards, and four touchdowns, adding a team-high 77 rushing yards in the process. This will go down as a memorable performance for the QB as he came out aggressive in the first half, stalled a little bit in the third quarter, and made the necessary plays down the stretch of the fourth to put Tyler Bass in a position to boot the game-winning field goal as time expired. Allen impressively completed a touchdown pass to four different receivers, none of whom were star wideout Stefon Diggs. The win officially clinched them a playoff spot and they are in the driver’s seat for the top seed in the AFC.

Allen entered Week 15 with +2000 odds to win the MVP Award on DraftKings Sportsbook and have improved to +1000. He and the Bills will hit the road to the Windy City this Saturday for Christmas Eve showdown against the Chicago Bears.
