The Buffalo Bills had one of the league's best defenses this past season. Not only that, but the offense, led by superstar quarterback Josh Allen, was one of the most explosive. Buffalo went toe-to-toe with the Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs but fell just short in an instant classic. The tough loss made the franchise even more hungry for a championship, as they went out during the free agency period and made a splash by signing two-time Super Bowl champion Von Miller, taking an already strong defense to the next level. Miller recently spoke about why he joined the Bills and instantly mentioned Allen, via the NFL's Twitter account.

Von Miller is feeling very good about his QB1 indeed. Miller immediately praised Josh Allen as a ‘superstar quarterback.' What's more interesting is the fact that the star pass rusher named Allen as one of the biggest reasons he signed there.
After all, Miller could have taken less money to return to the defending champion Los Angeles Rams, a team that just proved it was good enough to win the big game. Why would Miller be willing to leave that behind?
Well, for one reason, money. However, Allen's ability as one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL certainly had something to do with it. The Bills star led his team to their third straight winning season while throwing for over 4,000 yards and 36 touchdowns for the second consecutive year.
Allen then went out and dominated in the playoffs, posting the highest passer rating in NFL history for a single postseason, surpassing legendary San Francisco 49ers signal-caller Joe Montana.
Miller feels that playing with Allen and the Bills gives him the best chance to win. it's hard to argue with him.
