Friday Quickies: Josh Allen Edition

New, 8 comments

The rookie edge rusher wrecked Thursday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

After “falling” to the seventh selection in this spring’s NFL Draft, former Kentucky Wildcat and current Jacksonville Jaguars edge rusher Josh Allen had a chip on his shoulder to prove the six teams that passed on him just how special he is.

In just his third game, Allen was one of several Jaguars to pitch a tent in the Tennessee Titans’ backfield during their Thursday night matchup. Allen recorded two sacks, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits and four total tackles in a 20-7 victory.

It looks like Thursday night’s dominant performance was just the beginning of a promising career rushing the passer.
