The Buffalo Bills had struggled in recent weeks, but they put together a dominant performance against the New York Jets on Sunday, winning by a lopsided score of 32-6 thanks to a strong showing from quarterback Josh Allen. And he had a lot to say about the win after the game.
During his postgame press conference, Josh Allen acknowledged that as the quarterback, he is the catalyst for the energy the team has on offense. So he tried to make a point to bring a little more energy.
“Our team was energetic as we needed to be,” Allen said according to the Buffalo Bills team website. “A lot of that, for better or worse, comes from the quarterback. So just making that a point of emphasis throughout the week. Like, let’s have fun playing this game.”
While no team wants to struggle the way the team did last week, Allen admits that sometimes a little bit of adversity like that can provide a spark for the team going forward.
“Like every season, man, it has its ups and downs,” Allen said. “You’re going to have adversity. It’s how you bounce back from adversity. And sometimes it takes a spark like this to ignite your team.”
We’ll have to see whether or not the Bills can keep this momentum throughout the remainder of the season.
