Josh Allen isn’t complaining about questionable interference call

The Bills’ comeback after a huge blown lead got a huge boost from a questionable pass interference call a fourth-down play with the game on the line. After the game, Bills quarterback Josh Allen seemed to concede that his team got a little lucky.

“I’m not the type of guy that likes winning a game like that, but I’m not gonna complain about it,” Allen said via phone after the 35-32 win.

Nor should he. Every game has questionable calls. Stuff happens. And, yes, sometimes stuff happens in your favor. With the outcome in the balance.

Allen was far from content, for other reasons. “I’m pissed off about how we let a 28-3 lead dwindle,” Allen said.

That was something he mentioned several times, rebuffing the notion that if the stadium had been full of fans the lead would have been easier to preserve. He put the failure finish the game when up by 25 on his own shoulders, and he has vowed to keep that from happening again.

Regardless, the Bills are 3-0 and they’ve shown that they have the ability to hang in there even after giving up a huge lead. If they got a little late help from the folks in black and white, so be it.

  1. Rams are the last team that should complain about pass interference. Coming from someone who hates the Bills.

  2. It was not that questionable. The DB held Davis past 5 yards and Davis was the targeted receiver. The rules don’t become extra flexible just because it’s a key down. The controversial call of the day was the bogus “interception” they fabricated to end yet another Bills drive down the field.

  3. If we’re complaining about the refs let’s talk about the horrendous interception call as well as aaron Donalds horse collar strip sack of Allen. The Bills wouldn’t have needed the last minute PI call had the refs not screwed up earlier.

    The interception was the absolute wrong call, but it was not a horse collar tackle. Had him by the jersey.

  5. dapop, sneakers19: fyi, a horse collar tackle is completely legal if it’s on a QB who is in the pocket, so it really doesn’t matter whether it was or wasn’t on that sack.

  6. Josh Allen still has a long way to go before he reaches his prime. The kid is tougher than nails. Perfect fit for Buffalo. It’s been a long time coming. Enjoy it!

  7. You can’t let players play one way for 59 minutes and call the last minute differently. That sure looked like it could be illegal contact (not PI), but in the game they had not been calling it all day. Yes, that pick wasn’t a great call. I always thought simultaneous possession went to the offense. It is better to win ugly than lose pretty.

  8. You have to give the Rams credit, after flying across the country two consecutive weeks, they fought back late in the game and almost got the upset. This is a team that was considered by many to be fading in a competitive NFC West division. The Bills have to be concerned with their defense. There are going to be games where their offense is going to struggle and the defense will have to step up to win. They are just average right now.

  9. Terrible call. The receiver ran directly toward the DB, made contact and pushed him back. The DB never moved to the left or right. All the engagement was owed to the receiver running up to him, pushing and hand-checking him.

    You don’t make that call at that point unless you’re intent on gifting the Bills.

    Josh Allen appears to have taken that next step in is growth. So far Josh Allen > Sam Darnold
    _————————————

    Allen is far and away better than the entire QB class. That includes the no. 1 overall pick.

  11. The refs made an egregious error in ruling an interception on a play where the defender never had sole possession of the ball. When even the former VP of NFL officiating (Mike Pereira) can’t see any justification for the call on the field, you know you’ve blown it. The DPI was absolutely the right call. It might seem questionable because it was near the end of the game, but the rules don’t suddenly go away in the last minute of the game.
