Josh Allen: One playoff win’s not good enough

The Bills won the AFC East for the first time since 1995 this season and they won their first playoff game since that year on Saturday.

Quarterback Josh Allen was 26-of-35 for 324 yards and two touchdowns in a game played in front of Bills fans for the first time this season. Allen, who also ran 11 times for 54 yards and a score, said that he is “super excited for the fan base” after the win and that he’s not sure if “the guys really understand the meaning and impact of winning a playoff game for this franchise.”

They’ll get a chance to figure that out this week as they prepare for another home game against an undetermined opponent.

“We want to win more,” Allen said, via Matt Parrino of NewYorkUpstate.com. “One’s not good enough for us and we have to find a way to put our best foot forward this week and try and execute next week no matter who we play.”

If the Bills are going to double up on playoff wins, the defense will need to tighten up after allowing 472 yards and turning a 14-point lead into a nailbiter. Allen took a couple of late sacks and nearly lost a fumble in that fourth quarter, so there are things to clean up all around.

  1. Well you’re not getting many Playoff wins with that lack of a running game and Allen isn’t a running game! It take’s a total team to make it very far in the post-season.

  2. “Well you’re not getting many Playoff wins with that lack of a running game and Allen isn’t a running game! It take’s a total team to make it very far in the post-season.”

    Still making predictions re: Allen & the Bills?

    Can’t argue that point. Allen can carry the offense with the passing game but not being able to run is gonna hurt moving forward.

  4. Josh is trash. How are you going to win more playoffs when all you do is tuck and run, nothing special. They’ll be dilicious next week and done.

    I don’t know what damage Allen has done to you for you to hate him so much…But did you see that 34 yard dime to Diggs?

    LOL, someone got their feelings hurt today..

    Allen completed 26-of-35 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing 11 times for 54 yards and another touchdown.
    70%+ completion rate.

  7. Steve I’m
    Surprised you’re still around??? Hey expert – is Allen still gonna be in the league next year? I mean he’s barely nfl caliber

    Cody – man as a Vikings fan I thought you’d be planning the off-season parade or maybe watching Diggs highlights

  8. This is playoff football. There is no style points. All teams you play now are good. Colts were game, but the Bills played well enough and made enough plays to move on period. That is the objective.

  9. To me Josh didn’t play well. Rivers outplayed him. His numbers are overrated. It’s about controlling the time of possession and make plays when needed to. Josh just tuck and run, and couldn’t convert when needed to, it’s why they almost lost the game.

  10. Reminded me off watching Flutie in Calgary back in the day. Biggest mistake Buffalo ever made was ignoring the fact that Flutie ran for like 5,000 yards in the CFL. Biggest problem in American football is they treat the QB’s like glass ballerina’s. Allen is a tough and agile kid, let him give the Bills a depth that no other team can place against. When you have a kid that can run, and who can throw that accurate. Change the playing field up

    Excellent analysis. The major networks will be calling for your take, I’m sure. “Overrated” statistics and all. Whatever that means. Tucked and ran all those times. Outside the 300+ yards passing and two PTDs. I guess yes at that point he did tuck and run, for 54 more and a touchdown on the ground… to win the game. You must have fallen in love with Big Phil’s 20 incompletions. Hook back up with your expert takes next week plzzzzz.

  12. I’m just wondering are people always going to try and find something to complain about with josh Allen. 74% completion rate and a total of 3 tds. That’s the stats you should be looking at. Not worried about time of possession. Or him running for 54 yards. If it was Lamar Jackson people would be saying how amazing those stats were.
