Aaron Donald challenges Bills’ Josh Allen to bring his ‘big boy pads’ in Week 3
Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is more than prepared to handle the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. His confidence is apparently aimed directly at quarterback Josh Allen, as he delivered a message to him ahead of their Week 3 game.
“You better come with your big boy pads,” Aaron Donald says about facing Bills QB Josh Allen.

Donald’s words come certified. A two-time Defensive Player of the year and walking bad luck charm for quarterbacks, Donald will certainly look to lead the Rams to victory against Allen and the Bills on Sunday. He’s coming off a season in which he averaged 20.5 sacks with 59 combined tackles.
If his previous outing against the Dallas Cowboys is a sign of what’s to come, then Allen very well may be down on his luck. Donald finished that game with one sack to go along with four tackles. He also had four quarterback hits, which is a direct slight at Allen.
Allen, on the contrary, gave Donald his flowers during a press conference on Wednesday.
“He’s the best in the world at what he does and arguably the greatest to ever do it at that position,” Allen told reporters on a video call. “He’s so explosive, so powerful, so quick. He can bull-rush you, he can swim you, he can basically juke you at the line of scrimmage. So he’s a tough task to handle.”
Allen won’t be a pushover for Donald or the Rams, however. In fact, given his first two games of the season, Allen could use the same statement about coming prepared and apply it to the Rams.
Allen has thrown a ridiculous 729 yards to go along with six touchdowns through Week 2, pushing the Bills to a 2-0 record. Even more impressive for all those yards, he’s thrown above 65 percent in both contests.
Both teams possess a 2-0 record, making the game even more critical as both teams look to keep their winning streaks alive.
