When there are great quarterbacks that play each other often in an NFL season, rivalries form. This is the case with Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes.
Their playoff game last season, in which the Kansas City Chiefs won 42-36 in overtime, showcased that. It was one of the greatest games of all time and was named the best game of the season at the ESPYs.
Allen feels the loss to Mahomes' Chiefs will serve as motivation to go all the way this coming season.
“We’ll learn from it, we’ll get better from it, it’s going to fuel us," Josh Allen was quoted as saying by Pro Football Talk.
“There’s ways we could’ve found a way to win that game,” he added. “Unfortunately there’s 31 teams that don’t do that, in terms of winning the Super Bowl.”
The Chiefs have been considered the best team in the AFC for a few seasons now, but the Buffalo Bills could be coming for their spot. With the Bills on the rise and the Chiefs losing Tyreek Hill, the playing field might be more even in the 2022-23 season.
Will Josh Allen and the Bills finally get over the hump?
The Bills have been one of the league's best teams over the last two seasons and it stands to reason that they might finally get over the hump this coming season.
They added Von Miller, Jamison Crowder, Shaq Lawson, and OJ Howard to an already talented roster.
As such, the Bills will probably feel like they have as good a shot as anybody this year. If Allen can continue to build on his success, they'll be a favorite to win it all.
Josh Allen is currently the odds-on favorite to win MVP this year with +600 odds. That's better than Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Justin Herbert, Dak Prescott, and Mahomes. Bills fans will likely have plenty to feel good about next season.
