Josh Allen wants to see Jaguars build on upset of Bills

Jaguars edge rusher Josh Allen went into Sunday’s game against the Bills hoping to be the best player on the field with that name and that proved to be the case.

Allen became the first NFL player to sack a quarterback with the same name, picked off his namesake, and recovered a fumble by the Bills’ Josh Allen to help push the Jaguars to an unexpected 9-6 win. The Jags had four sacks and three turnovers while keeping Buffalo out of the end zone and Allen said after the game that he wants to see the team come up with the same kind of effort when they are facing quarterbacks who don’t share his name.

“We’ve got to build on this, we’re going to build on this,” Allen said, via the team’s website. “When we are on our stuff, we can be a really great defense and it showed today. Our defensive line can go against any offensive line any time of the week and stop any run, stop any pass if we do what we need to do. Hopefully we can capitalize and get better.”

The Colts are next up for the Jaguars and Carson Wentz has shown a propensity for mistakes under pressure, so the Jaguars will be trying to bottle what they brought to Buffalo on Sunday.

  1. What the hell happened on Sunday? If there was one lock for Sunday this was the game. It looked like the Bills came for their Saturday walk through and were surprised by a game being played.

    Not sure who the right tackle on offense is but he should clean out his locker. Several times the Jags just rushed past him untouched.

  2. Bills O line depth exposed. Take out two starters, and it’s a disaster.
    Expect practice squads to get a look today.

  3. Build on an upset of a massively overrated team?
    At least the teams that have beaten the Chiefs this year can say they beat a club that has recently won a Super bowl.
    Or ever won Super Bowl…

  4. Their offense just needs to score. Won’t always be able to hold opponents to 6 points. Lawrence missed on a wide on TD.

  5. It’s not everyday that you can say that you watched Josh Allen battle Josh Allen and Josh Allen won!

  6. Jags were missing three starters on the oline, plus one of the better up and coming rbs, James Robinson….js
