Allen will be face to face with Josh Allen, the opposing team’s best linebacker, when the Bills take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. Despite the fact that both NFL players are 6-foot-5, Allen weighs 18 pounds heavier and will be attempting to sack his namesake.

He’s also excited to meet quarterback Allen, who has thrown 17 touchdowns for 1,972 yards and only three interceptions so far this season.

“I’m excited about this one, not just because of who we’re playing against, or him but the team and how that team has been playing of recent,” Jaguars’ linebacker said, as reported by Jacksnoville.com. “This is a fantastic chance for us.” I wouldn’t want to be on any other team than this one to get back on track.
