ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — Even though the Buffalo Bills are not in the Super Bowl this year, fans could take pride in knowing that their football team has a star quarterback.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen became the first Bills player to receive an MVP vote since Thurman Thomas won MVP in 1991.

Allen finished second in MVP voting behind Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The 24-year-old received four MVP votes, following a season where he led his team to their first AFC Championship Game appearance since 1994.

Allen finished the season with 37 passing touchdowns, eight rushing touchdowns, and a receiving touchdown, while only throwing ten interceptions.

Allen threw for over 4,500 yards and set several single season franchise records.
