The Buffalo Bills curb stomped the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5. Josh Allen picked apart the Steelers' vulnerable defense, leading his team to a very easy 38-3 win.

Allen has now been recognized for his efforts with Offensive Player of the Week honors.

The star quarterback took home the award for the AFC, while New Orleans Saints playmaker Taysom Hill won it in the NFC. Allen was joined by New England Patriots EGDE Matthew Judon and Indianapolis Colts kicker Chas McLaughlin as the other POTW winners for defense and special teams, respectively.

Week 5 was a truly videogame-like performance by the Bills' star. He torched Pittsburgh's secondary for a whopping 424 yards and 4 touchdowns. That wasn't all, as he added another 42 yards on just five rushes on Sunday.

This was Allen's eighth offensive POTW win of his career. He only trails Buffalo great Jim Kelly (10) for the most wins in this category in franchise history.

Allen will look to keep up his MVP-level season in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds peg the Bills as 2.5-point favorites ahead of that matchup.
