There is a case made that Josh Allen was the best player on the pitch in last Sunday’s loss Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Buffalo Bills The midfielder completed 36 of 54 for 308 yards with two touchdowns and one interception (rated 86.1) and dashed 109 yards and a touchdown.
Allen became only the fourth quarterback in NFL history of throwing 300 yards and going 100 yards in a game (regular or post-season). He accomplished the feat while facing a foot injury, which resulted in the Bills midfielder having to wear walking shoes after the game.
“He was a fighter and he played hard,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott said after the game. “It doesn’t surprise me. I certainly don’t surprise you. That’s why the boys love him, that’s why, you know, he’s our quarterback. .”
Allen has a noticeable limp in the fourth quarter about the Bills’ overtime loss, but still insists he won’t be out of the game. He hit two touchdown passes in the fourth half and led Buffalo to two points from a foot injury, leading Buffalo from 17 points short to back and drawing the game before losing in extra time.
“I think there are a lot of teams that will have to be in that position,” Allen said. “Especially, coming on in the second half and we didn’t move the ball as we wanted early. Get the ball back in the second half. Like I said, we only have people who want to win. We want to be like that. wonderful .
“With the way we reacted in that second half, it’s again a team that we have to beat to move forward. We get it, we know it. I didn’t expect anything else. .”
Brady, who faced Allen a lot when he was supporting New England Patriots, was certainly commended for Allen’s performance. The Buccaneers’ quartet isn’t surprised that Allen was able to deliver those numbers against the Tampa Bay defence.
“He’s a great player,” Brady said. “He played in a really unique style – part midfield, mostly midfield, but he had the ability to run there and they gave him a lot of midfield kicks and he did. very good with it. He’s a real threat there.”
The extent of Allen’s injury is expected to be revealed on Monday, but the Bills’ quarterback is not expected to miss time. Given how Allen gutted Sunday’s game and fought with the Bills for a playoff spot, sitting and missing the shot was not an option anyway.
