Josh Allen Hates One Thing About Being a Buffalo Bills Star QB
It's been three and a half years since the Buffalo Bills selected Josh Allen at 7th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. Since then, Allen has developed into one of the best players in the entire league and was a runner-up in MVP voting last season, along with leading the Bills to a 13-3 record and an AFC Championship appearance.
The Bills are 4-2 this year and are heavy favorites to win the AFC East again this season. It's safe to say that Allen is riding high with fame. Turns out, it can be a bit overwhelming.
In an interview that Allen did with ESPN's Marty Smith, Josh admitted he didn't realize just how little privacy he would have in this profession -- a job he's wanted since he was a kid.
"I'm not the kind of guy that really enjoys the spotlight outside of the field," said Allen. "I don't go out too often; I don't go to bars and clubs."
Allen said the lack of privacy is the one con of the job, but he loves that he ended up in a place like Buffalo, where the distractions are fewer.
The Bills are currently in their bye week, so the players will have a week to themselves, before they get back to work for their home game at Highmark Stadium on Halloween against the Miami Dolphins. Kickoff for that matchup will be at 1 pm -- the first afternoon kickoff since the Houston Texans home game on October 3rd.
