Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen proclaims there’s only one New York team in the NFL, and it’s neither the Giants nor the Jets.
A betting man may believe the NFL schedule-makers had a little fun with the Buffalo Bills when cooking up the 2019 slate.
Only once every eight years do the Bills play the New York Giants in East Rutherford, NJ. Yet, the schedule-makers decided to put Buffalo in MetLife Stadium to open up the season (New York Jets) only to play in the same road stadium to take on the Giants the following week.
The team is now 2-0 after knocking down the Giants by a final of 28-14 on Sunday.
Quarterback Josh Allen enjoyed himself, throwing for 253 yards and a score on 19-of-30 passing, which led into an interesting postgame comment from the strong-armed kid.
There’s only “one New York team,” Allen proclaimed.
Obviously, Allen was kidding. The comment didn’t contain malicious intent whatsoever and provided a bit of a lighthearted moment following the game.
Also, obviously, it’s true: Buffalo is actually the only pure New York NFL team. Although Buffalo is seemingly in another country (far, far away somewhere west and a little north), the Bills represent the state’s only team (while the Jets and Giants are headquartered in New Jersey).
The bottom line is simple: winning carries bragging rights. The young Bills quarterback can pretty much claim anything in relation to New York dominance after sweeping his two-week MetLife challenge to open the season.
Josh Allen’s Buffalo Bills will welcome in the New York Jets in Week 17 this season.
