Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - If you're in East Buffalo and you look up to the sky, you may be able to catch a glimpse of Superman... in a way.
With his latest heroics during Saturday night's win over the Miami Dolphins in Orchard Park, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has, once again, been highlighted as a staple of art in the City of Buffalo.
It was in the fourth quarter of the Bills' 32-29 win when Allen pulled off his best Superman impression in an attempt to convert a two-point conversion for Buffalo to tie the Dolphins at 29-29. Allen dove over a pile of players at the goal line to try and break the plane of the goal line with the football. After the play had originally been ruled unsuccessful, a review deemed that the football just barely broke the plane of the goal line, signaling a successful conversion.
Buffalo would go on to win the game on their very next offensive drive with Allen and the offense chewing up the rest of the game clock to give kicker Tyler Bass a 25-yard field goal to earn the victory and the playoff berth.
In the days following Buffalo's win, a cutout of Allen has, once again, been spotted in the City of Buffalo, this time of the Bills quarterback depicted as Superman himself. Very fittingly, this cutout of Allen can be found jumping over the sign at the corner of Clark Street and Kent Street (Superman's alter ego, Clark Kent) in the Broadway-Fillmore District in East Buffalo.
The cutout is inspired by the drawing that The Buffalo News cartoonist Adam Zyglis published on Tuesday.
Allen finished Saturday night's win completing 25-of-40 passing attempts for 304 yards and four touchdowns. He also added 77 yards on the ground, helping the Bills improve to 11-3 on the season. His performance was enough to also earn him NFL honors as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season, and 10th time of his career.
While this isn't the first instance of Allen becoming a poster for public art in Buffalo, it is the second time this season he has seen a cutout of one of his famous hurdles being spotted in the city.
The last example of such came back in mid-October after the Bills quarterback hurdled over a Kansas City defender in their Week 6 win over the Chiefs. That sprung the famous cutout of Allen hurdling over the sign at the corner of Hertel Avenue and Wellington Road in Buffalo.
The Bills can check another accomplishment off their list of goals this season on Saturday afternoon in Chicago against the Bears. With a win in the "Windy City", Buffalo would clinch its third-straight AFC East title, and inch another game closer to clinching the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the playoffs.
