Save for his postseason losses against the Kansas City Chiefs, he is living the life by being at the top of his game.
He already got paid after the Bills gave him a six-year, $258 million extension during the 2021 offseason.
This year, he started the season as the favorite to win the Most Valuable Player award, per multiple sportsbooks.
At least for the opening week, the former Wyoming standout proved that the hype is real by leading the Bills to an emphatic road victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
The 31-10 demolition of the defending Super Bowl champions is a major statement that the Bills are ready to dominate with Allen as their leader.
It was not a perfect game because he still had two interceptions to his name.
However, he delivered when it mattered most by finishing with 26 completions out of 31 attempts for 297 yards and three touchdowns.
Beyond his rocket arm, he also displayed his underrated running ability by adding a rushing touchdown and 56 yards on the ground.
It’s a performance that put the league on notice, especially last season’s Defensive Rookie of the Year, Micah Parsons.
Josh Allen just plays football the right way!! He’s special !

The Dallas Cowboys All-Pro linebacker tweeted, “Josh Allen just plays football the right way!! He’s special!”
The scary part is that Allen has 16 games left to cement Parsons’ claim of him being a special talent.
Can Anyone Break The Allen Code?
After watching their game against the Rams, teams that will face the Bills this season are now trying to find a way to stop him.
It’s hard to bring him down once he takes off with the ball due to his size and mobility.
If he is not running the ball, Allen can target his talented receiving corps with McKenzie, Diggs, and Gabriel Davis.
The Bills will be invincible if both aspects of their offense are clicking.
