For the third time in the 2020 season, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has been named as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

This honor for Allen comes after his Monday Night Football performance against the San Francisco 49ers, where he went 32-of-40 for 375 yards and four touchdowns in a 34-24 win at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

For Allen, he becomes the first Bills player in franchise history to win the honor of AFC Offensive Player of the Week three times in one season. He was also named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week back in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins, as well as Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks.

So far on the 2020 season, Allen has completed 69.9% of his passes (299-of-428) for 3,403 yards, 26 touchdowns and just six interceptions. The 24-year-old has also rushed for 322 yards and six touchdowns this season, while also catching a touchdown pass in Buffalo's Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. His 33 touchdowns this seasons is one off the franchise mark for a quarterback in a season, set by Hall of Famer Jim Kelly back in 1991.

In terms of league rankings, Allen currently sits fourth in completion percentage, fifth in passing yards, sixth in passing touchdowns, tied for sixth in average yards per-attempt (8.0), and seventh in passer rating (105.9).

It is the fifth time this season where a Bills player has been named the AFC Player of the Week. Along with Allen's three Offensive Player of the Week honors, defensive end Jerry Hughes was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week back in Week 7, while linebacker A.J. Klein was also named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week just last week against the Los Angeles Chargers.
