Under his leadership, they were 13 seconds away from hosting last year’s AFC Championship Game.
Despite the defeat, Allen performed well in the clutch, proving that he’s worth every penny of the six-year, $258 million extension he got from the team.
With Allen performing at an ungodly level last season, the Bills barely needed backup Mitchell Trubisky.
The former Chicago Bears starter signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal to learn the ropes from Allen and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
He ended up appearing in six regular-season games for the Bills, finishing with 43 passing yards, a rushing touchdown, and an interception.
But even if Trubisky’s stint in Buffalo would end up being brief, the top brass is still painting a good picture about him.

The Market For Trubisky Is Intensifying
Trubisky may have left the Bears after four seasons, but it’s easy to forget that he led the team to the playoffs twice even though he did not win any of those games.
Likewise, he also had a 29-21 record with the Bears.
Even if he did not play much in 2021, it’s compelling that NFL teams are spending so much time talking about him at the NFL Combine compared to the quarterback prospects in the draft.
If that’s the case, the bidding war for his services will heat up once he officially becomes a free agent this month.
