On the Buffalo Bills website, head coach Sean McDermott made a statement on Allen.

"He's got ice water in his veins man, said head coach Sean McDermott. "There's no moment that's too big for him. That was true from the very start when we got him here quite honestly. Josh is the leader. He does a great job leading by example and that winning mindset. He's a highly competitive guy as are the guys in the locker room. We've got a bunch of guys like that, which is a good thing for us." 

This is the third time Allen has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week with all three coming after his performances against the Dolphins.
