How the former Wyoming Cowboys fared in Week 13 in the NFL | national
LARAMIE – Josh Allen’s training in the cold Wyoming wind wasn’t enough to beat Bill Belichick.
The former Cowboy star and current Buffalo quarterback finished 15-for-30 for 145 yards and a touchdown in the Bills’ 14-10 home loss to the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football.
Allen’s rookie counterpart Mac Jones only attempted three passes in the miserable Buffalo weather conditions, including freezing temperatures and 40mph wind gusts.
The Patriots (9-4) ran the ball 46 times for 222 yards to take control of the AFC East over the Bills (7-5).
âI’m very confident in our guys. We have great leaders, real professionals on this team, âsaid Allen, who led Buffalo with 39 rushing yards, in his post-game press conference. âThis can be the one that can tear us apart or bring us closer, and I think the latter. I think we’ll get things done …
“I don’t think so. I know for a fact that we will because of the lineup we have.”
Allen and the Bills will look to bounce back against Tom Brady and reigning Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
