This marks his 36th touchdown of the season and continues to add on to his historic night as he broke former Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe's single-season passing record of 4,359 yards earlier in the game. The touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie is what etched Allen's name into Bills' history, reported by Josh Alper of NBC Sports. The big man out of Wyoming is taking care of business against the Miami Dolphins, as they are up 28-6 at halftime.
Allen is proving himself to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league and the playoffs are where he is going to have to show his true potential. It's no easy feat to break a single-season passing record, but making a run in the playoffs should be the only thing on Allen's mind as he has been unsuccessful in the past seasons. They lost to the Houston Texans in the Wild Card round last year 22-19 while having a considerable lead heading into the fourth quarter. With Allen's confidence continuing to rise, he will have to remain consistent and make plays in order to prevent history from repeating itself.
The main priority for the Bills is to keep Allen safe until the playoffs. Though Allen is demolishing the Dolphins, it would not be surprising if he sat for a decent chunk of the second half, allowing backup quarterback Matt Barkley to call the shots.
