Bills QB Josh Allen reaches historic feat that not even Steve Young, Michael Vick achieved

Buffalo Bills, Josh Allen, Steve Young, Michael Vick

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has achieved a multitude of notable accomplishments in his opening four seasons so far in the NFL, and he has now reached yet another impressive feat.

Allen entered the Bills’ Week 16 road matchup against the New England Patriots with 128 total touchdowns in his career. He had recorded 98 passing touchdowns and 30 rushing touchdowns in 58 games played.

The fourth-year Bills passer came away with two red zone touchdown passes in the opening half against the Patriots, as he connected with wideouts Stefon Diggs and Isaiah McKenzie for crucial scores.

The pair of touchdown passes gave him 100 in his run with the Bills. More so, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to record at least 100 touchdown passes and 20 rushing touchdowns over the opening four seasons of his career.

This is quite an impressive feat for Allen considering that the likes of Steve Young and Michael Vick were not able to reach this achievement over the course of their careers. Young was not a starter in each of his first four years in the league, while Vick notched 36 touchdown passes and 13 rushing scores in his such campaigns.

In the big picture, Allen well has his sights on leading the Bills to another playoff berth, but he sure will need to finish the campaign on a promising note in order to do just that.
