Tony Dungey says Josh Allen’s accuracy is no longer a talking point as he looks to lead the Buffalo Bills to Super Bowl glory; He watches the Bills play the Tennessee Titans live on Sky Sports NFL on Monday Night Football from 12:15 a.m. Tuesday.
Hall of Fame head coach Tony Dungy says the Buffalo Bills showed the traits of a Super Bowl favorite during Thursday night’s dominant win over the defending champion Los Angeles Rams.
Offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey scored in his first regular-season appearance since taking over from New York Giants head coach Brian Daball and Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford endured a hot opening day when he was sacked seven times and intercepted three times.
“They really made a statement, we were aware of their infraction and Josh Allen, they looked fantastic running,” former Super Bowl-winning head coach Dungy told Sky Sports.
“But I was really impressed with his defensive front. His defensive coordinator, Leslie Frazier, told me that he was going to play some conservative coverage to protect this young second player and that he was counting on the front end to really hold up and they did a great job stopping the attack. run, running toward the passerby, whom they caught behind Matthew Stafford.
“I thought Buffalo’s improved defense really made them Super Bowl favorites.”

Despite the loss, this season has been the stage for Allen’s continued monumental rise to center after the insurmountable hesitation that has encountered him since entering the NFL as a 2018 first-round pick.
Thursday night’s showcase showed an even more improved Allen as the Bills look to maximize their championship window this season. He finished the game 26 of 31 passing for 297 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, passing the ball 10 times for 56 yards and scoring.
“It really seems like he has the timing and the chemistry with his receivers,” Dungy added. “He’s very confident with his shot, he doesn’t do crazy things, he doesn’t shoot in traffic.
