Josh Allen: Record against winning teams

Josh Allen is officially one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. He is amazing in every facet of the game. He has a big arm and is simply one of the most exciting players to watch play football. The Bills found a gem in Allen and are set to compete for a Super Bowl for years to come.

Let’s take a look at how many times the Buffalo Bills won games against teams with a winning record with Josh Allen as their starting quarterback.

The reason for QB wins against winning teams

I started to dive into this stat for every quarterback because the new hot argument is to say that a certain quarterback didn’t beat any good teams. I often see people use this argument to say players like Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford are not good and just put up empty stats. At the end of the day, there is much more to the story.

First off and most importantly, quarterback wins are a team statistic. Secondly, very few quarterbacks in the NFL have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league.

There are a lot of moving parts involved in football. While winning and losing is the most important stat, it is one that unfairly gets attributed to quarterbacks.
