Week 9 in the NFL was filled with several surprising upsets but the biggest of all was the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills’ loss to the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars in a low-scoring shocker. 

Josh Allen looked like a shell of himself as the 5-2 Bills lost 9-6 to the 1-6 Jaguars and he recognized the problem began with him.

“Got to be smart with the football and end every drive in a kick,” he continued. “Understanding how our defense was playing, not giving them a short field. Again, I got to be better. I played like s— today.”

Allen completed 31 of 47 passes for 264 yards, with the two picks and a fumble. He also fumbled again late, but officials ruled his progress was stopped. The Bills finished with 301 yards but had 12 penalties for 118 yards.
