Jacksonville Jaguar’s Josh Allen
Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Josh Allen has a day for the ages against the Buffalo Bills Josh Allen. The Jaguars defeat the Bills, 9-6; however, this game seemed a bit personal for the linebacker for the Jaguars. This game sent the Internet into a frenzy with several memes and viral commentary. Jaguars Allen wanted to remind himself of this game for the rest of his career, he wanted the game-worn jersey of Bills Josh Allen. He figured number 17 wop with blue numbers and red trim would look good on a wall somewhere in his home, per ESPN.
This Sunday, the Jaguars had the better Allen. The third-year player’s interception, sack, and fumble recovery all contributed to the victory over the Buffalo Bills. That performance will go down as one of the best defensive efforts in franchise history. Allen and company harassed Buffalo’s Allen all day. They caused three second-half turnovers that solidify the Jag’s second victory of the year.
“That’s what we’re supposed to do,” Jacksonville’s Allen said.
Buffalo Bill’s Josh Allen
The Bills are 5-3 on the year, yet this is their most confusing loss of the year. They did recently lose to the Tennessee Titans three weeks ago on the final play but this seemed evenly matched. Bill’s Allen completed 31 of 47 passes for 264 yards, threw two interceptions, and fumbled. He fumbled even later in the game; however, the referees ruled the play dead so it was erased. With that being said, Bill’s Allen was not satisfied with his play nor the team and believes they will get better from this experience.
“We played poorly, and it begins with me,” Allen admitted. “This loss hurts, but it will only make us stronger.”
Did the Bills lose or did the Jacksonville Jaguars win?
The game’s most determining moments came on the Buffalo Bill’s final two drives, which led to multiple Allen fumbles.
“I noticed something on their sideline: their energy was different from ours,” commented Jaguars cornerback Shaquill Griffin. “If there’s one team that deserved this win, it’s us, and we have to believe that. I kept emphasizing this to everyone. Look at them, walking around with no passion. They don’t deserve this. Let’s show them why. Now we need to maintain that momentum.”
Allen’s sack made NFL history, marking the first time a player with the same name sacked a quarterback since the league started counting sacks in 1982, according to ESPN.
“Our defense today put on an incredible performance, one of the best I’ve seen,” said Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence. “It was just exciting to watch. They really carried us.”
