It was bound to happen. Dating back to his days with Kentucky, Josh Allen has been seen as a legitimate pass rusher.

While he’s struggled to an extent with the Jacksonville Jaguars since being selected No. 7 overall back in 2019, there was always going to be a chance that Allen would end up sacking another player by the same name, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. After all, they entered the NFL one year apart.

With Jacksonville and Buffalo taking on one another Sunday in a game most figured would be lopsided, Allen came through with a sack of his counterpart in the second quarter.

This represents the first time since the NFL started to officially keep sack stats back in 1982 that a player has sacked a quarterback with the same name.

In genuinely shocking fashion, Josh Allen would then intercept his counterpart with the game tied at six late in the third quarterback. This is also the first time that has happened.

As for the game itself, the quarterback Josh Allen and his Bills struggled against a Jags squad that has lost 21 of its past 22 games. That included everything being nodded up at six at halftime.
