A lot of dynamics shifted in the NFL roster after week 10 as the latest one included, Josh Allen, making the cut for the top five quarterbacks. Thanks to an emphatic offensive showdown that saw the Buffalo Bills running riot against an undercooked New York Jets on Sunday where the former secured their biggest offensive showdown of the season.
With the latest victory over the Jets that saw the Bills imposing a 45-17 victory over the hapless Jets, they improved their record to 6-3 in the season. This humdinger victory by the Bills also bore witness to Steffon Diggs chronicling a record high of the season as he grabbed a staggering 162 receiving yards. However, this feat proved to be instrumental in aiding Josh Allen to gatecrash into the top five quarterbacks of the season in terms of passing yards.
Allen bagged an incredible season-best of 366 yards which was the second-highest in the week as he was only beaten by Kansas City signal-caller, Patrick Mahomes who managed to rack up 406 yards. With this incredible showdown of brilliance, Allen was successful in making the cut for the top five quarterbacks of the season. We will take a brief glance at the other four and Allen who is now leading the NFL roost in terms of passing yardage.

He has averaged 7.5 yards pass per attempt and completed 19 touchdowns.

Burning ablaze at the ripe age of 44 years, Tom Brady has made it a habit of maintaining a residency in the list of the tops while shattering one record after the other.

He has successfully completed 25 touchdowns and thrown in 10 interceptions while averaging 7.1 yards per pass.
#1 Matthew Stafford – 3014 yards
