ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — No surprise here.  Buffalo Bills' quarterback Josh Allen has been named this week's  AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

The honor comes after Allen's outstanding performance in the team's 43-21 win Sunday over the Washington football team.

The Bills' QB went 32 of 43 (74.4%) for 358 yards and five touchdowns. Allen is also nominated for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week.

Sunday's game is the 9th time Allen has thrown for at least 300 passing yards. It's also his fifth game where he's thrown for at least four TDs and passed for at least 300 yards. He joins QBs Patrick Mahomes, Dan Marino, Andrew Luck and Kurt Warner in posting that same statistic.

This is the seventh time the 25-year-old signal caller has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week and first time this season.
