Josh Allen put above Patrick Mahomes by Bills’ Gabriel Davis

The AFC Divisional Round has just about every football fan scrambling to find some logic that would result in Josh Allen still being in the playoffs. The Bills-Chiefs clash was arguably the greatest game in NFL history, with both Allen and Patrick Mahomes putting on jaw-dropping performances on the biggest of stages. After the game, Bills wideout Gabriel Davis, who caught an NFL Playoff record four touchdown receptions in the loss, declared that Allen was the best quarterback in football, despite what Mahomes managed to do in the waning moments of the game, and subsequently in overtime, via Andrew Siciliano.

Davis proudly declared that Allen had all of his faith and that the Bills’ star is the best quarterback in the NFL. It’s hard to argue with his claims, too. Allen went off in the Divisional Round, completing 27-of-37 pass attempts for 329 yards and four touchdown passes, all of which ended up in the hands of Davis. That performance came on the heels of a similarly monstrous outing against the New England Patriots, during which Allen threw five touchdown passes and zero interceptions en route to the 47-17 win.

While Bills fans will surely be disappointed not to have a spot in the AFC Championship, absolutely no one will be placing the blame on Allen. The fourth-year quarterback played about as well as humanly possible, but despite his best efforts, the team fell short in one of the wildest outcomes in the history of the sport. Despite the loss, Davis had nothing but praise for Allen, and still considers his quarterback as the cream of the crop.
