The Buffalo Bills have been among the best team in football in recent years largely thanks to the impressive play of Josh Allen. Despite Allen’s impressive play, the Bills have fallen short in the postseason for the past few years, which is something that he and head coach Sean McDermott plan on fixing.

Both Allen and McDermott spoke to the media on Tuesday and addressed their recent playoff struggles. McDermott spoke very highly of his franchise quarterback, saying that he sees “a new sense of focus” in him this offseason.

“I’ve seen a different Josh this offseason, not that it was bad before,” said McDermott via ESPN’s Alaina Getzenburg. “He’s got a new sense of focus, I would say, and determination, which is good.”

Allen perhaps has more pressure on him than ever in what was a somewhat rocky season last year for his standards. He helped lead the Bills to the No. 2 offense in the NFL in points-per-game last season, but also led the league in turnovers last season with 19, including 14 interceptions.

He seems to realize that pressure, but reassured fans that he focus is bring a Super Bowl to the city of Buffalo.

“I so badly want to bring a Super Bowl here to Buffalo,” Allen told Getzenburg.  “And I just don’t want anything to get in the way of allowing me to be the best quarterback that I can be for this team.”

The Bills will likely be in a position to make a playoff push yet again this season. The real question is will they make it over the hump this time if they do make it into the postseason yet again.
