Josh Allen on loss to Chiefs: We’ll learn from it, get better from it, it’s going to fuel us

Bills quarterback Josh Allen hasn’t gotten over his playoff loss to the Chiefs, and he says that may be a good thing.

Allen told Peter King that he and his teammates are motivated to be better after the heartbreaking overtime loss.

“We’ll learn from it, we’ll get better from it, it’s going to fuel us,” Allen said.

Although the Chiefs’ win on the opening possession of overtime led the NFL to change its overtime rules, Allen declined to blame the rules for the loss and said the Bills just need to find a way to win.

“There’s ways we could’ve found a way to win that game,” Allen said. “Unfortunately there’s 31 teams that don’t do that, in terms of winning the Super Bowl.”

The Bills are among the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season, after falling painfully short last year.

  1. Hard to blame the players as the primary reason they lost. The coaching on those 13 seconds is the worst i’ve seen in the NFL. The coaches absolutely are the primary reason they lost the game.

    Defending the endzone when a FG get’s the game to OT? Everything from not squibbing the kickoff to calling a timeout after every KC timeout to help the KC offense rest the 2 players running deep patterns and draw up plays and defending the sidelines instead of the players.

    Something as simple as tackling kelce and Hill coming off the line of scrimmage would’ve won the game. Yardage penalties were meaningless with 13 seconds left.

    The coaching staff had their deer in headlights moment and got run over.

  2. They beat the Chiefs.

    But their coach forgot what a squib kick is and the 13 seconds he could’ve ran off with one remained on the clock.

    It’s not on you, Josh.

  3. I’m rooting for the Bills (as long they are not playing the Chiefs)! Josh Allen is impossible not to like and I hope he’s able to earn a ring for himself and the Bills franchise. With 13 seconds left last year, I was already at peace with the thought of rooting for the Bills in the Super Bowl.

  4. He’s trying to get over it
    But you people just won’t let him.
    This 13 second thing is beyond beating a dead horse.
    Yeah, it sucked. Honestly I thought the Hail Murray was just as bad If not worse

  5. Nope. It’s going to follow you all year because you automatically think you’re entitled to getting back and being a team to win because of mouth running and arrogance.

    Bad leadership by still talking about it and never really addressing it after it happened.

  6. Lets be honest, IF the Bills had beaten KC they still would have lost to the Bengals the following week.

  7. When Mac Jones said he’s working out and expects to be better it’s called working hard. When other teams say it, it’s called arrogance. Gotcha

  8. Throughout all the major sports, there is example after example of a painful loss fueling a future championship, or even a dynastic run.

    “13 seconds” is just another part of the Bills story now, but hopefully it will be a story of great success and overcoming a history of adversity. As a fan, I am truly excited not just about this season, but about the next decade+.

  9. “Lets be honest, IF the Bills had beaten KC they still would have lost to the Bengals the following week.”

    You’re kind of mailing it in, there. No one thinks that. Nothing against the Bengals, but they would not have gotten past the Bills IN Buffalo. They got a little lucky in that 2nd half at KC; Mahomes was clearly off his game for some reason.

    I was much more worried about the Rams. Not a good match-up for last year’s Bills team. That game would have been 50/50 at best for Buffalo.

    As an outsider my take is I don’t think a lot of fans will remember that years from now. Not like Norwood wide right is remembered. Wide right will also go away once they win a title and I think there’s a good chance that is coming soon.

    The Bengals can run the football, the Bills can’t stop the run. Plus the Bengals have a better QB. Yes the Bengals would have beaten the Bills.

  12. If the Bills had beaten KC in that game, they would have lost to the Bengals in the Championship Game.

    I’m an Eagles fan, too. No accident how clearly we could see it in a game with two teams coached by former Eagles coaches.

    Neither mentor nor student has excelled in this part of the game. In fact, the mentor was once historically bad at end-of-big-game tight clock, close score situations.

    But this time, the mentor beat his student.

    And Eagles fans can smell all of this miles (and a decade) away.

  15. I’m not sure teams ever really “learn” anything from a loss other than how to feel lousy.

  16. The Bills got better.
    The Jets got better.
    The Fins got better.
    The Pats got worse.

    Talk about last season all you want. The upcoming season will be a nightmare for Pats fans. I would be dreading it if I were one.
    7 for 7.
