Josh Allen took a massive leap between his second and third seasons to become one of the game's brightest stars. In the last two years, he's thrown for 35+ touchdowns, 4,400+ yards, and has put up completion rates well above 60%.
Aside from his rookie year, the Buffalo Bills have won at least 10 games in each camapign Allen has been under center, paving the way for the Wyoming product to have some impressive records against his NFL foes. His play has even garnered some high praise from the league's best defender.

Allen vs the Kansas City Chiefs
It's only fair that we begin with the Kansas City Chiefs, since Allen played in one the most exciting playoff games ever against K.C. in the 2022 NFL Divisional Round.
Just like the Bills, the Chiefs have a young superstar of their own in Patrick Mahomes, and the former MVP helped his club narrowly escape with a 42-36 victory to advance in the postseason.
The game marked the second time that Allen had fallen to the Chiefs.

Allen managed to have the last laugh against KC in Week 6 of the 2022 season, leading the Bills to a gutsy 24-20 win on the road at Arrowhead Stadium. The six-foot-five QB threw for 329 yards and three TDs in the emotional win.

Allen vs the Miami Dolphins
Moving on to divisional opponents, Allen has had relative ease with the Miami Dolphins thus far in his career. He's dropped only two games to the Florida squad and has dominated their defense more often than not. In 11 games against Miami, Allen has thrown for 30 TDs and over 2,500 yards.
Getting to see this team twice per year definitely has its perks for Allen and the Bills.

Allen vs the New England Patriots
Now that we've discussed what divisional opponent Allen has massacred, it's time to talk about the team that has provided him with the most trouble. There are two sides to this story: Allen was 0-3 against the Tom Brady-led Pats, but has since gone 5-1 after TB12 split for greener pastures.
Depending on how well Mac Jones can continue to develop, New England may be the only team that can keep Allen at bay, or he'll just continue to crush it as he has in four of the last five meetings.

Allen vs the Minnesota Vikings
It may be hard to believe, but Allen wasn't always seen as a can't-miss superstar. In a rough rookie season with the Bills, he threw 10 TDs alongside 12 interceptions, and Buffalo went 5-6 in games he played. However, there was one game that stood out from the rest.
In the third game of the season, Allen led the Bills to a 27-6 smacking of the Minnesota Vikings, with the QB throwing for 196 yards and one TD, and rushing for two scores. Oh, and this happened:

Allen vs the New York Jets
We've already talked about Allen pumping the Miami Dolphins, but there is one more AFC East opponent he's enjoyed success against. Although not as dominant, Allen is 6-3 against the New York Jets, including winning five of the last six meetings.
That one loss came in Week 9 of the 2022 season, when Allen was picked off twice and the Jets pulled of a surprising 20-17 win at home.
