Bill Belichick praises Week 4 opponent Josh Allen: 'He's like a running back'
Bill Belichick and the Antonio Brown-less New England Patriots are on to Buffalo.
It can be hard to elicit praise from the notoriously stoic and tight-lipped Patriots head coach, but he had several kind words for Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen ahead of their Sunday matchup.
"He's like a running back," Belichick said on Wednesday. "He's got good speed, good power and he's shifty. He avoids and breaks a lot of tackles."
The Patriots coach said Allen's speed is "another dimension" for his defense to prepare for. The young quarterback has two rushing touchdowns on the season and has compiled a total of 105 rushing yards through three games.
Both teams are undefeated heading into Sunday's afternoon tilt. Buffalo's largest margin of victory so far this season came last week with a 28-14 win over the New York Giants. New England's defense, meanwhile, hasn't given up a touchdown since last season's AFC Championship game.
