Add another honor and award for Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen after his remarkable 2020 season.

The Bills announced on Friday that Allen was named the Pro Football Writers of America's Most Improved Player of the Year for 2020.

Allen's 2020 season was quite the turnaround from his 2019 campaign that saw him throw for just 3,089 yards, 20 touchdowns, nine interceptions and complete 58.8% of his passes.

In all 16 games played this season, Allen set a number of franchise single-season records in Buffalo, throwing for 4,544 yards, 37 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions, while also completing 69.2% of his passes. The 24-year-old also accounted for a franchise record 46 touchdowns this season, as he added eight rushing scores, as well as a receiving touchdown in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals.

The third-year signal caller became the first Bills player to be named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week a total of four times this season. He was also named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month in both the months of September and December.

Last month, Allen was named to his first Pro Bowl, as well as being named a Second-Team All-Pro by the Associated Press.

Allen will lead the Bills offense into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to play the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
