Josh Allen called game. In the closing minutes of Sunday’s premier matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs, the high-profile quarterback used his legs to lead his team to victory. An incredible hurdle on the final drive sent the NFL world into a frenzy.

Out of the two-minute warning, Allen faked a handoff and ran around the edge, using his speed to his advantage. Then, he turned into “Air Allen,” hurdling a Chiefs defender on his way to a first down.

While Allen is known as an excellent runner, NFL fans didn’t expect to see that. Everyone was in awe of the quarterback’s incredible athleticism.

One individual on Twitter believes Allen’s performance vaulted him to the top of the quarterback rankings.

Another Twitter user said he’s never seen a quarterback with a hurdle quite like what he saw tonight.

As if Allen’s hurdle wasn’t enough, he was also responsible for the game-winning touchdown pass. He connected with Dawson Knox on a 14-yard pass for a go-ahead touchdown with just over a minute to play.

Buffalo hung on for a 24-20 win at Arrowhead Stadium.
