Former New York Jets/Baltimore Ravens linebacker Bart Scott had some wild advice this week for Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
Buffalo is set to host the New England Patriots on Saturday night in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs.
The high temperature for Buffalo on Saturday is 11 degrees. 11. The HIGH.IS.11.
I don’t know how a human can even function when it’s that cold, let alone throw a football accurately (then again I’m from the south, if it’s 11 outside, I’m almost certainly going to be inside….and there will probably be bourbon).
On Thursday, Scott had some advice for Allen on how to deal with the extreme cold.
And it’s not what I expected.
Scott suggested that Allen take some Viagra before the game.

Viagra, if you’re somehow unaware, is a drug that’s “used to treat male sexual function problems” via increased blood flow.
Scott said many players during his time in the NFL took Viagra before games to increase their blood flow.
It makes sense. Increased blood flow = warmth.
There was even a study from Harvard in 2006 that said Viagra could help with cold feet and hands. It appears that Scott’s suggestion checks out
Allen might benefit from heeding Scott’s advice. As long as he can deal with the…..side effects.
It’s gotta be worth a shot, right?
