Josh Allen breaks Jim Kelly's Bills single-season record for TD passes

With his fourth touchdown pass of a spectacular Monday night, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen broke legendary Bills QB Jim Kelly’s single-season franchise record for TD passes.

Allen’s 34th touchdown pass of the 2020 season surpassed Kelly’s previous franchise record of 33 set in the 1991 season.

The record-breaker was an eight-yard scoring pass to Stefon Diggs, the receiver’s third of the night.

Kelly, a Hall of Famer and perhaps the most revered Bills player of all-time, led Buffalo to a Super Bowl appearance that season, while Allen has keyed Buffalo’s rise to its first AFC East title since 1995.

CONGRATULATIONS #17 @JoshAllenQB Proud of you! Keep it going!!! #BillsMafia

Allen tied the record with an 18-yard scoring strike to Stefon Diggs earlier in the third quarter.

It was an all-around stellar night for Allen in terms of single-season accomplishments, as he joined another Hall of Famer Steve Young as the only players in NFL history with 4,000 yards passing, 30 passing touchdowns and five rushing touchdowns in a season, per NFL Research.

Allen’s night ended with much of the fourth quarter still to be played. He was stellar. Allen completed 27-of-36 passes for 320 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Through 15 games, Allen’s 377 completions and 34 touchdowns are each franchise records and with his eighth 300-yard game of the season on Monday, he established another Bills record.

It’s been quite a season for Allen and he’s still got one game left.
