    An unshaven Josh Allen admits he took deal with Gillette in part to troll Patriots



    After the Buffalo Bills wrapped things up at Gillette Stadium with a 24-10 victory over the New England Patriots, quarterback Josh Allen broke some news on the post-game Amazon Prime desk.

    Former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick complemented Allen’s beard and asked if he was starting his playoff look early. Allen explained that he took a sponsorship deal with Gillette – a men’s shaving company – in part to troll the Patriots and their fans.

    “I think people understand that I kind of took that Gillette – it’s a great sponsor to have,” Allen said. “but I know where this stadium is at. I knew who plays here and the fans here.”

    The Bills used a successful run game and a few magnificent Allen plays in the game to score 24 points in the game. The New England Patriots defense entered the game as the no. 1 DVOA defense in the NFL – a metric that combines the quality of play and when it happens in a game to rank teams.

    Allen threw for 223 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis. Allen’s second-quarter touchdown to Davis came with 5:34 remaining in the quarter and put the Bills up 17-7 before halftime. According to NextGen Stats, Allen was 0.3 yards away from the sideline when he threw back across his body to find Davis in the end zone. It’s the second-closest to the sideline completion that NGS has ever recorded. Since 2016, Allen is responsible for three of the four completions with a release within a yard of stepping out of bounds.

    Allen didn’t hesitate for a moment when deciding to throw that pass because he has trust in Davis.

    “He made a play, and just giving him a chance to do it, so I appreciate him continuing to work on that play,” Allen said. “I know I’ve got to be better down there, and there’s a few plays that I wish I had back today, but a win is a win, we’ll take them how we can get them.”

    The Bills were a perfect 3-for-3 in the red zone in the game against the Patriots. New England only reached the red zone one time and failed to score a touchdown.
