The Buffalo Bills beat the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL Season by a score of 31-10. QB Josh Allen recorded 26/31 in passes completed/attempts for 297 yards which also included his three touchdowns for the game. He also had two interceptions during the game.

Quarterback Josh Allen agreed to a six-year extension with NFL side Buffalo Bills on Friday. The contract is valued at $258 million with $150 million guaranteed and the rest in bonuses.

The latter figure would set a record for the most in NFL history, according to media reports.

The current contract, at $43 million per season, puts Allen just behind Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes in average annual value.  

Born in Firebaugh, California, Allen used to regularly attended both games and football camps from a very young but wasn’t offered any scholarship offers from any NCAA Division I program.

At the junior college level, he attended Reedley College, where Allen started playing as a quarterback. Soon he made his way into the University of Wyoming. He quickly went up the ranks at the university. 

In December 2017, after leading the 8–5 Cowboys to a 37–14 win over Central Michigan in the 2017 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, Allen announced he would be entering the 2018 NFL Draft. 

The Buffalo Bills drafted Allen with the seventh overall pick in the draft.

The 25-year-old Allen enjoyed a breakout 2020 campaign as he finished as runner-up to Aaron Rodgers in NFL MVP voting after setting franchise records for passing yards (4,544) and touchdown throws (37).

The quarterback also led the team from Buffalo to their first AFC championship game appearance since 1994 after piloting a 13-3 campaign.

With Allen establishing himself as one of the best young passers in the league, it’s up to the Bills to give him a Super Bowl-worthy supporting cast. The team made massive strides in that area last offseason, picking up wideout Stefon Diggs in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings. Diggs was a first-team All-Pro in his first season in Buffalo. 

The Bills gave Allen another weapon this offseason, bringing in veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders. The team also kept key members of its defense, re-signing Matt Milano and Daryl Williams.
