The first Sunday of the 2022 regular season will get under way in four days. But first, on Thursday, September 8, when they meet the Buffalo Bills, the league’s reigning champion Los Angeles Rams will hoist their Super Bowl banner.
Josh Allen told reporters, “Going to face the reigning Super Bowl winners and watching them hoist their flag, that’ll be an intriguing sensation for sure. And a few people I spoke with who had previously participated in the game as players or coaches mentioned that it had a playoff-like atmosphere.”
The Bills suffered an incredible heartbreak at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs the last time Josh Allen played in a real playoff situation after the two teams combined for 25 points in the last two minutes of an AFC divisional fourth quarter for the ages. Allen does add that his attention is on the now and not the past.
