Buffalo Bills star quarterback Josh Allen still has the utmost respect for head coach Sean McDermott. Allen made that clear in the postgame press conference following their thrilling 20-17 road win over the reigning Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs, as he delivered a strong take on the character of McDermott, who's been weathering criticisms of late due to a controversial comment he made in 2019.

“You can question a lot of things about coaching style, you can question a lot of things about my decision-making, you can question a lot of things about this team, but to question his character and who he is as a man … he's one of the better humans on this planet,” Allen of the Bills mentor (h/t Patrick Warren of NFL.com).

Despite the drama heading into a crucial Week 14 showdown against a powerful opponent in Kansas City, Allen and the Bills were able to put together a winning performance on the field. Allen went only 23-for 42 for 233 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception, but it was enough to tow Buffalo to a victory.
