Bills Fans Are Upset at Cris Collinsworth For His Comments On Josh Allen [WATCH]
It's hard to be a downer on a Monday after the Buffalo Bills beat the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, 38-20 on Sunday Night Football; especially when it was a complete team win where the offense and defense stepped up in a big way in front of a national audience.
But Bills fans aren't overly thrilled with statements that color commentator Cris Collinsworth has last night regarding a run that Bills quarterback Josh Allen made during the first half.
The play was an RPO, which means run-pass option. Allen faked the handoff to wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie and ran for no gain to the right side in the Kansas City red zone.
Linebacker Nick Bolton grabbed Allen's leg and appeared to twist it a bit, when Allen was down. Collinsworth seems to be not only be okay with the twist by Bolton, but rather saying the Chiefs "should" be doing that.
"He's gonna wrestle around with it, twist it a little bit," says Collinsworth. "You wanna run your quarterback? Yeah, go ahead; take a shot all day," added Collinsworth.
The game featured 17 total penalties in the game -- 10 of them committed by the Bills in what was a very hands-on approach by the refereeing crew. Many questionable calls were made, including back-to-back calls in the fourth quarter where Mitch Morse was called for holding that negated a Allen first-down run; then, Chiefs' Frank Clark called for roughing the passer, which extended the Bills drive.
The Bills next play the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football in Nashville.
