Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is no stranger to being on the weekly NFL highlight reel. Elite arm strength and stellar rushing abilities give him an opportunity to make a play on any given snap. He went into detail about how exactly he hurdled a Kansas City Chiefs defender during a Week 6 win.

The Bills were facing a 1st & 10 from the Chiefs' 28-yard line coming out of the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter. That was when Allen took off on a designed QB run and jumped over safety Justin Reid to get past the first down marker. Buffalo scored the game-winning touchdown a few plays later.
Allen made an appearance on the podcast "Kyle Brandt's Basement" on Tuesday and spoke about the play that went viral on social media. The Pro Bowler explained how he was so locked in that he didn't show any emotion after the hurdle. One camera angle even perfectly caught his unexpressive face.
The play wasn't made with consequences, though. Allen said he has a giant bruise on his butt after sliding a few feet out of bounds when he eventually went down. It's safe to say the bruise was worth it. The Bills now stand alone atop the AFC with an impressive 5-1 record heading into their bye week.
Of course, that record wouldn't be possible without the efforts of Allen. The Wyoming product has completed 66.9% of his pass attempts for a league-best 1,980 yards and 17 touchdowns. Allen has also added 257 yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground on 47 carries. He is Buffalo's clear-cut leader.
The Bills have the best odds to win Super Bowl 57 at +290, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
