Josh Allen Left Out of National TV Graphic; Bills Fans are Furious [WATCH]
There are no lack of storylines for this game between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots on Monday Night Football at Highmark Stadium this week.
The Patriots are a half-game up on the Bills for the AFC East division lead (New England has yet to have their bye week), rookie quarterback Mac Jones is playing in what looks to be the most hostile environment he's ever played in, the Bills and Patriots and the top two defenses in football, and the Bills have the scored the second-most points per game in the NFL this season.
You also have the weather, which right now, calls for dropping temperatures with high wind gusts and the threat of lake effect snow for Monday evening in Orchard Park, NY. Mac Jones has never played in a snow game (outside of a flurry last Sunday against Tennessee) and grew up in Florida and played college football at Alabama.
Josh Allen is still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and is definitely looking forward to this AFC East matchup. However, according to the powers that be at the NFL on FOX, Mac Jones is who more people are looking forward to watching.
The NFL on FOX showed this graphic towards the end of the Thursday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints last night. Bills fans were left speechless.
Yes, Mac Jones is in the running for NFL offensive rookie of the year, and this is his biggest test on the road...but the other quarterbacks shown are star veterans in the league and to pick Jones over Allen for THIS graphic is borderline absurd.
We'll see what happens on Monday night in Orchard Park.
