The Buffalo Bills and their rabid fan base got the full Josh Allen experience this past Sunday in a 21-17 win over Cincinnati.
But Allen’s desire to always make something happen came to fruition late in the fourth quarter, when the dual-threat signal-caller operated coolly from the pocket for completions of 7 and 49 yards, then turned to his legs, running three times in a four-play span (gains of 6, 8 and 7) to set up Frank Gore’s game-winning 1-yard plunge with just under two minutes left in the game. This event made the Betting in Australia go wild. Everyone wasn’t expecting such an advance in such a short time.
“Obviously, the competitor in me wants to extend plays and try to fit the ball into small windows,” Allen told me at his Wednesday press conference, “but understanding, like Coach (Sean) McDermott’s preached, playing complementary football, allowing our defense to go out there and forcing teams to have long drives against our defenses and not giving them a short field.
Taking care of the football, scoring when you have the opportunity and the team (the Patriots) we’re playing against (this week) knows that all too well.” His rookie season was a roller coaster, but his late-season performance was one that Brian Daboll was optimistic about just as the viewers were at the online casino au.
“I never really had the mobility he does so I kind of had to rely on timing and my arm, so that’s kind of a big difference between us,” Allen’s backup, Matt Barkley, said to me in the locker room on Wednesday.
