Josh Allen is in just his third NFL season, but he’s already impressed some of the best with this skillset.
The 24-year-old has looked particularly good in 2020, helping the Buffalo Bills to a 4-0 start. Allen has recorded 15 total touchdowns (12 passing) while tallying a 70.9 completion percentage and throwing for 1,326 yards.
Brett Favre likes what he’s seen from Allen, and even thinks the Buffalo signal-caller could compare to one of the greatest soon enough.
“Man, he looks awesome. That kid is a tremendous talent,” Favre said Tuesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “He can sling it, he can move, but more than anything we saw that with him the last few years. But what we’re seeing now is he’s taking it to the next level. He’s winning games.
“For Buffalo fans and the organization, it’s what you’ve been waiting to see and you’ve gotten it. His time is now and I think it’s going to be for quite a while. I think Josh Allen will be the new Tom Brady. At some point, he will be running the division. I believe that.”
