The Buffalo Bills (11-3) tackle division rival New England Patriots (6-8) in Week 16 Monday Night Football. Bills quarterback Josh Allen is having a breakout season and has been among the leading MVP contenders in his third season. The Bills are a 7-point road favorite at FanDuel Sportsbook with a victory keeping Buffalo ahead of Pittsburgh for the AFC's No. 2 playoff spot.

Allen's breakout season has helped Buffalo earn its first AFC East division title since 1995. Allen has passed for 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. He passed early season MVP favorite Russell Wilson in early December, but Allen's odds to win MVP have dropped to +1500. He's the third MVP choice behind fellow quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers (-250) and Patrick Mahomes (+220).

Buffalo has won four straight games and is a Hail Mary loss to Arizona away from an eight game winning streak. Allen has been on a tear the past three games with nearly 1,000 passing yards and 8 TD passes to just 1 interception. Allen was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week after completing 28 passes for 359 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Bills' 48-19 beatdown of the Denver Broncos in Week 15.

That honor was Allen's fourth Offensive Player of the Week award this season, and Bills fans can't wait for the playoffs to start. Buffalo's odds to win the Super Bowl are currently +1000 at FanDuel Sportsbook. That trails only the Kansas City Chiefs (+190), Green Bay Packers (+550) and New Orleans Saints (+750).
