The big storyline

Allen is the most important player on this team. Period. Allen has done virtually everything he can to lead this team to the promised land.

Now, the main storyline will be if Allen can improve upon his already stellar play.

Allen’s 2021 season was a remarkable follow-up to his 2020 breakout campaign. Allen threw for 4,407 yards and 36 touchdowns while rushing for 763 yards and six touchdowns.

The quintessential moment in Allen’s season occurred in the divisional round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Allen led the Bills down the field multiple times to regain the lead. Allen put Buffalo on his back, only to see a conglomerate of circumstances work against him and the Bills.

Buffalo cannot let something like what occurred in Kansas City happen again. It’s expected that Allen will lead the way and keep the Bills from falling again.

Prediction

Allen is poised for another standout season. He signed the most lucrative contract in Bills history, which could top out at $258 million by its conclusion. Allen is among the top names mentioned in the MVP race.

The Bills are the odd-on favorite to win the Super Bowl. With the previous two seasons ending in heartbreaking fashion, Buffalo should be hungrier and learn from their experiences to finally make it to the top of the AFC.

Allen should put together another season in which he throws for approximately 4,500 yards. Another 30-plus touchdown passes are on the horizon as well. Allen should exceed 5,000 total years and break the 40 total touchdown barrier.

Allen’s MVP candidacy will hinge upon how far the Bills get in the season. If Allen leads Buffalo to a No. 1 seed in the playoffs, expect Allen to garner the majority of top votes for MVP.

Some may have concerns with a new offensive coordinator taking the helm of this high-powered offense. However, Ken Dorsey has spent time on this staff and recognizes what this offense can do well.

Expect the Bills dynamic offense to keep rolling along.
