Сообщение All the rookie quarterback needed was a push.
After putting the Bills ahead with his arm Buffalo Bills T-Shirt , Josh Allen sealed Buffalo's 14-13 victory over the Detroit Lions with his leaping legs.That's the way fullback Patrick DiMarco described Allen's 2-yard leap to convert a fourth-and-1 at the Lions 41 with 1:47 remaining."He said, 'Give me the freaking ball,' and then he said, 'Pat, push me,'" said the fullback, who provided Allen a nudge to get him over the top of the pile. "He's competitive. He's tough. He's everything you want as a leader. This franchise is going to be good with him around."Allen hit rookie Robert Foster in stride for a 42-yard go-ahead touchdown pass with 10:26 remaining, and the Bills hung on to eliminate the Lions from playoff contention.Allen improved to 4-5 in nine starts this season, and won for the third time with Buffalo trailing or tied in the fourth quarter.The Bills (5-9) snapped a two-game skid and won despite finishing the game minus their top three running backs. Starter LeSean McCoy (left hamstring) and backup Chris Ivory (left shoulder) were inactive and then Marcus Murphy did not return after dislocating his left elbow in the second quarter.The Lions (5-9) lost despite second-year receiver Kenny Golladay finishing with a career-best 146 yards receiving, and will finish with a losing record for the first time since going 7-9 in 2015."Yeah, it's frustrating. You play this game for the opportunity to play in the playoffs," quarterback Matthew Stafford said. "We had our chances. We had our opportunities, just didn't make enough plays."The Lions' special teams helped cost them.Detroit opened the scoring on Stafford's 4-yard touchdown pass to Andy Jones, but botched the extra-point attempt on Don Muhlbach's bad snap.Then Buffalo Bills Hats , following Foster's touchdown, Stafford responded by marching the Lions 45 yards on the next possession only to have kicker Matt Prater miss a 48-yard field goal wide right."I don't have an excuse," said Prater, who entered having hit his previous 14 field-goal attempts. "I let everybody down, including myself."First-year coach Matt Patricia said there was plenty of blame to go around."There's plenty of situations out there on the field where we could do more to do better to help us win," Patricia said. "It starts with me. Have to go out and execute better."Stafford wasn't the problem in continuing to build chemistry with Golladay on an offense missing leading rusher Kerryon Johnson (knee), and with veteran receiver Marvin Jones Jr. on injured reserve.A week after managing just 101 yards passing 鈥?the second-fewest in his career 鈥?in a 17-3 win at Arizona, Stafford topped that number in the first half alone with 137 yards passing, including 115 to Golladay.Allen showed he's capable of winning with his arm. He finished with just 16 yards rushing after becoming just the second quarterback in NFL history to top 95 yards rushing in three consecutive games."I don't know if the stats are very good, I haven't seen them. But I think it comes down to the team," Allen said, providing credit to the defense. "It was a collective effort."Bills safety Micah Hyde made a point to head over to Allen's locker and tap him on the back following the game."I just said, 'Keep being yourself, man Buffalo Bills Hoodie ,'" Hyde said. "He has heart. He plays with heart. He wears it on his sleeves and we all appreciate that."FOSTER CATCHING ONFoster, an undrafted rookie out of Alabama, has combined for 438 yards receiving and two touchdowns in his past five games since being activated from the practice squad.He has topped 100 yards receiving in three of his past five games, including a 104-yard outing in a 27-23 loss to the Jets last weekend. He's Buffalo's first player to top 100 yards receiving in consecutive games since Sammy Watkins in Weeks 11 and 12 in 2015.PICKING ON TRE'DAVIOUS WHITEStafford went at the strength of the Bills secondary in beating Buffalo's top cornerback Tre'Davious White.Golladay was falling backward to make a 33-yard catch even though White was flagged for pass interference to set up Detroit's first scoring drive, capped by Stafford's 4-yard pass to Jones.Trailing 7-6, Stafford floated a pass up the right sideline which Golladay caught by outjumping White for a 40-yard completion. The Lions scored three plays later on Zach Zenner's 1-yard plunge.NOT-SO-SPECIAL TEAMSA hip injury that bothered Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka came into play on Buffalo's first possession, and after Allen was sacked for a 9-yard loss on third-and-9 at Detroit's 29. Rather than have Hauschka attempt a 50-plus-yard field goal, the Bills punted. Hauschka was hurt when being blindsided by Jets defensive lineman Henry Anderson last week.UP NEXTLions: Close home schedule against Minnesota next Sunday.Bills: Close road schedule at New England next Sunday.The Josh Allen era should begin against Los Angeles Chargers Following a strong preseason showing, Nathan Peterman became the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. Like many others, I declared this to be the best decision out of several less-than-ideal choices. Essentially, Peterman as the starter was the result of what a wise man once called “the two sweetest words in the English language”—default. With the clock showing 11:22 in the third quarter of the season opener, default was dethroned. Josh Allen replaced Peterman following his second interception of the day. Peterman finished the game with five completions on 18 attempts for 24 yards. He failed to lead the team to a single first down. Head coach Sean McDermott was asked which quarterback will start the following week, as the Bills host the Los Angeles Chargers. Predictably, he indicated he would need to review “the tape” before making that decision. I’ll save him him the trouble. The Peterman experiment should be over. The primary reason for starting Peterman over Allen should have been his efficacy. Aka Youth Customized Buffalo Bills Jerseys , “the best player should take the field.” Peterman’s quick-strike offense and command of Brian Daboll’s offense in the preseason was superior to Allen. On Sunday, his preseason success proved to be a mirage. The pre-snap reads and fast timing offense did not provide Nathan Peterman an advantage. His command of the offense was to the tune of a 0.0 passer rating. Nathan Peterman was not the better player to take the field. I could be accused of writing Peterman off after a very small sample size. That’s assuredly not the case. Peterman can and likely will continue to improve. However, the Baltimore Ravens showed that Peterman is still a work in progress. That means our quarterback room is filled entirely with developmental prospects. Development takes time and effort, with the starter getting the lion’s share of resources. Who, then, should the Buffalo Bills commit their resources to? Josh Allen is and always was the future. One could argue that Allen should be protected or allowed to simmer for a little longer. When AJ McCarron exited Western New York, the Bills removed a massive security blanket for Allen, signaling loud and clear that there is comfort in the “what if” of Allen starting. More to the point, McDermott doubled down on his comfort level with Allen by putting him in for nearly half a game where it was clear Allen would experience failure. Josh Allen was the better quarterback on Sunday. Allen is the future of the Buffalo Bills. The actions of Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have already systematically removed every layer of protection between Allen and the wolves that many were afraid he would be thrown to. Is it ideal that the Josh Allen era begins now? No, but there’s a new default in town.
