Bills’ Josh Allen speaks out on losing AFC East title to Patriots
While he didn’t perform poorly against the Patriots, his 208-yard passing game wasn’t enough to stop New England from sweeping the regular-season series against his team. He revealed in the postgame presser that he feels bad he wasn’t able to snag the win against a weakened Patriots team.
“It sucks,” Allen said, per Pro Football Talk. “Obviously they’re an AFC East division rival and that’s their consecutive whatever it is year winning the division. So we’ve got to find a way to get over that hump, we were playing to put ourselves in position where we could potentially win it. But they played well today and hats off to them.”
However, he’s also looking at things in a positive light.
“If you look at the type of teams we’ve played the last three weeks, they’re all playoff-type teams,” Allen said. “So getting that experience against these defenses, teams we might be able to see again, it’s all valuable experience because playing games in December that mean something; not many people are doing that right now and we’re one of those teams. So it feels good to be in the situation that we’re in and the position that we’re in.”
They will be playing the final game of the season against the New York Jets, and this is a chance for the Bills to finish the season on a high note.
