Josh Allen Pushing For This Change at Buffalo Bills Games
The Buffalo Bills conducted a walkthrough practice at One Bills Drive on Wednesday, as the prepare for the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Kickoff will be at 1 pm.
Bills fans are still talking about the brutal loss to the New York Jets on Monday Night Football, which was the most-watched game ever on Monday Night Football.
For the Bills, they are learning from the loss with review of the game tape...most notably, Josh Allen.
Allen committed four turnovers, which needs to stop if the Bills have any hopes of winning the division and the Super Bowl this season. The Raiders don't have as good a defense as the Jets do, but do have edge rusher Maxx Crosby, who will go against left tackle Dion Dawkins.
Allen also wants to better the playing conditions at Highmark Stadium and across the NFL.
Josh Allen Pushing for Grass Playing Surfaces at Highmark Stadium
After practice, Josh talked about the ongoing topic of grass vs. turf fields in NFL stadiums. This topic was heightened after Aaron Rodgers' injury on Monday night. The NFLPA released a statement on Wednesday, saying how they are heavily pushing for grass to be in every stadium.
Allen said they have been pushing for grass for a long time. Josh states that "it feels harder on their bodies after a game or practice on turf."
"They need to figure out a way for every team to get grass."
Highmark Stadium has had different types of field turf since 2003. Before that, it was traditional astroturf at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills haven't had grass playing surfaces since the days at the Rock Pile.
The problem is money. It will cost a lot of money and time to replace all of the field turf surfaces with grass, along with any contractual obligations the league has.
There's little doubt for players -- they want grass back in all 32 stadiums.
