Josh Allen, the quarterback, has been named an MVP finalist once again. The Bills quarterback is one of three contenders; the winner will be announced at NFL Honors in Las Vegas during Super Bowl week.
Allen finished third in the MVP vote in 2022 and second in 2020.
Allen led the NFL in total touchdowns (44) and yards (4,830) in his sixth season, helping the Bills to an 11-6 record and their fourth consecutive AFC East championship.
Allen set multiple records during the season here are a few standouts
Set a perfect passer rating of 158.3 against the Dolphins in Week 4.
In that game, he became the second player in NFL history to have 300+ passing yards, 4+ passing touchdowns, 1+ rushing touchdowns, and a perfect passer rating all in one game.
Surpassed Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young for second place in all-time running touchdowns.
Set an NFL record by completing 10 games in a single season with one or more passing and rushing touchdowns.
Became the first player in NFL history to score 40 total touchdowns in four straight seasons.
In a Week 18 victory over the Dolphins, he set an NFL record with his ninth career game of 300+ yards passing and 50+ yards rushing.
Safety Damar Hamlin has been selected a finalist for Comeback Player of the Year.
Hamlin made a remarkable recovery to the NFL after getting into cardiac collapse and having to be resuscitated on the field during Buffalo’s 2022 season game against Cincinnati on January 2.
The safety improved miraculously throughout the first several months of his rehabilitation. By training camp, Hamlin had returned to the field to practice with his teammates. The Pittsburgh native appeared in five games for Buffalo this season.
Last year’s NFL Honors celebrated Hamlin, the Bills and Bengals’ training and medical staffs, as well as the University of Cincinnati Medical Center staff.
Last year, Hamlin also received the NFLPA’s Alan Page Community Award, which recognizes a player who goes above and beyond to undertake community service in his hometown and team city. The NFLPA donated $100,000 to Hamlin’s foundation, Chasing M’s.
