Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is considered one of the favorites to come away with the NFL MVP award this season. If what we saw from the former No. 7 overall pick to open the 2022 season against the Los Angeles Rams Thursday evening is any indication, he’s well on his way to accomplishing that feat.

Allen led his Bills down the field on a 75-yard touchdown-scoring drive, culminating in a 26-yard strike to Gabe Davis on third and one. It was absolutely surgical.

Davis caught eight passes for 201 yards and four touchdowns in Buffalo’s overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in last season’s AFC Divisional Playoffs. It’s rather clear that these two are set to connect big time throughout the 2022 season. That touchdown is a prime example of this.

As for Josh Allen, he’s a favorite among NFL executives to come away with the top individual honor this season.

“He’s got everything around him that he needs—Buffalo might have the best roster in the league—and he’s set up for another massive season. There’s been enough growth as a passer where you’re encouraged.”
