4-Year Anniversary of Josh Allen’s First Viral NFL Play
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is in his fifth season in the NFL.
It's hard to believe it's been that long since Allen made his NFL debut, which was during the week 1 game in 2018 against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Bills actually started Nathan Peterman in that game, but Allen came in the game during the second half after the score got out of hand.
Allen would not win his first game as Bills quarterback until week 3, when the Bills traveled to play the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings were heavy favorites, but the Bills went on to win the game by a score of 27-6.
Allen played a great game for just his second-career start and one play in particular had everyone in the NFL world talking. Today, September 23rd, is the four-year anniversary of that famous play.
The Bills were facing a 3rd and 10 late in the first half, up 17-0. Allen decided to take off and run to try and get a first down and in the process, jumped over Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, who is 6'5''.
Josh would go on to jump over more NFL players in wins against other teams, including last year's regular season game in Kansas City against the Chiefs and this past Monday against the Tennessee Titans.
Allen has had many viral moments in his four-plus seasons and this still might be the number one play he's ever made, although there are plenty of throws that would maybe deserve to be in that discussion.
