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 ended the 2021 season with an 11-6 record, another AFC East division title, and made it to the AFC Divisional Round game; losing a heartbreaker to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Still, despite the loss, Allen was amazing in both playoff games last month, and cemented himself as one of the top 2-3 quarterbacks in the NFL. He's a superstar at the position.
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.
