Josh Allen is one of the biggest stars in the world of the NFL. Let us put it this way, if anyone prepares a list of talented quarterbacks who will rule the game in time to come, Allen will definitely make the top 3. Although the Bills couldn’t make their way to the Super Bowl last season, they did perform consistently well during the league stage.

Even in the divisional round playoff game against the Chiefs, the Bills were looking all set to seal the deal, until Patrick Mahomes worked his magic in the final 13 seconds of the contest which ultimately turned things around. Nevertheless, it tuned out to be a successful season for the Bills and a lot of credit has to go to Josh Allen.

Allen churned out incredible numbers during his college career and as expected, he was roped in by the Bills in the 2018 draft. It would be fair to say that Allen has surely proved his worth. However, on the day of the draft, Josh got himself involved in a major controversy.

We all know that the internet is a funny place, things one has said in the past can start trending all of a sudden and it can make or break an individual’s career. On the day of reckoning, Allen’s old Tweets went viral in which he had used racial and homophobic slurs.

As expected, he faced backlash from a lot of people for what he had written on a public platform. Allen then went on to apologize for his actions claiming that he was “young and dumb” to make such comments. Although the first couple of years at Buffalo didn’t turn out great for him, he took the NFL world by storm in 2020 guiding them to their first division title since 1995.

In the coming season as well, a lot of eyes will be on Allen and it will be interesting to see if he can guide his side to the ultimate glory this time around.
