Buffalo Bills (6-3) quarterback Josh Allen is looking on the bright side after falling to the Minnesota Vikings (8-1) in excruciating fashion.
Allen, who gutted it out through an elbow injury, has received all kinds of support from Bills Mafia after the team’s overtime loss.
Allen joined Kyle Brandt’s Basement on Tuesday, reminding the rest of the football world to look at the big picture with Buffalo.
“Big picture: We’re 6-3,” Allen said. “We’re not going to let this end us and tear us apart in the locker room. We’re going to come together and we’re going to try to play some good football going forward.”

Every team in the NFL will face some kind of adversity throughout the course of a 17-game regular season. Whether that be injuries, bad calls, missed opportunities, or a combination of all three. What separates the contenders from the pretenders is how teams respond after getting knocked down.
When firing on all cylinders, there isn’t a team in the league the Bills can’t beat. There’s a good reason as to why Buffalo remains the Super Bowl favorites, per BetMGM.
Allen alluded to it with Brandt, the Bills are 6-3. There is plenty of time left in the season to secure that coveted No. 1 seed in the AFC, which comes with a bye in the postseason.
However, the best team doesn’t always win in the wide world of sports. The Cincinnati Bengals proved last year that, in peaking at the right time, any team can make a Super Bowl run.
“We don’t want to peak early in the season,” Allen emphasized. “We want to have some adversity because it’s going to develop and build that foundation on stronger bones. We just have to continue to grind, keep trying to get better, and just take it one game at a time.”
