Josh Allen Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (17) throws against the New York Jets during the first half of the home opener at MetLife Stadium on Monday, Sept. 11, 2023, in East Rutherford.

The NFL released the rosters for the 2024 Pro Bowl on Wednesday. And there was a big surprise when it came to the quarterback room in the AFC.

The AFC is obviously stacked with quarterback talent. But most would assume that Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen would be amongst the top three quarterbacks in the conference who get into the Pro Bowl.

That was not the case. The Pro Bowl quarterbacks in the AFC consisted of Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, and Tua Tagovailoa.

This was a shock to most fans, as many voiced their disagreement with this announcement on social media.

When you are looking at just passing statistics, Allen probably doesn’t deserve to be in over any of the three players that were named as Pro Bowler’s.

However, Allen’s rushing ability this season simply cannot be ignored. His 15 rushing touchdowns on the year are tied for the most of any quarterback in football.

When you combine his rushing statistics along with his passing statistics, things stack up far better for him. Allen has 42 all-purpose touchdowns on the year, the most of any player in football.

Shockingly, the player who probably has the worst case for being a Pro Bowler of those that were included at the quarterback position in the AFC is Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes has struggled down the stretch this year with the third most interceptions of any quarterback in football.

Obviously a Pro Bowl appearance for Allen isn’t the end of the world. His true goal is to get the Bills to the Super Bowl in February, which is still very much on the table.
