Josh Allen is Already Setting Records in Jacksonville

He’s only played seven games as a rookie in the NFL, but former Kentucky defensive end Josh Allen is already making his mark in the Jacksonville Jaguars history book.

With a third-quarter sack on Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, Allen became tied for the most sacks through the first seven games to start a season by a single Jaguars player. The sack on Dalton became the fifth of Allen’s young and budding career and the third straight game in which he’s registered a sack.

Defensive tackle John Henderson – a two-time Pro Bowler – also recorded five sacks through the Jaguars’ first seven games back in 2002.

Allen also recorded a tackle for loss in the Jaguars 27-17 victory over the winless Bengals squad. Jacksonville moves to 3-4 on the season and the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft continues to impress during his first year in the pros.

Can somebody, ANYBODY, explain to me how a quarterback from Duke was picked ahead of this dude?

    Bias much? One, have you seen Daniel Jones play? He’s looking good so far. Two, neither one should be judged right now. Three, couldn’t anyone say “how a DE from Kentucky was picked ahead of….”? Sorry dude but Kentucky isn’t at the place we’re we as fans can be that arrogant to anyone.

      What he said. Love Allen but a standout player at UK is not the same as being a standout player at OSU or Bama.

      Lmao are you kidding me? National Defensive Player of the Year is different at Bama than National Defensive Player of the Year at Kentucky? Swear to Christ, some of you all really need to get off crack

      If you don’t think a Bama player gets the benefit over a KY player you are the one on crack. I don’t care what awards Josh won. And comparing him to a QB being taken earlier is laughable.

      But being a standout player in the nation by winning multiple national defensive awards unanimously is pretty damn good right? Or did y’all forget that already? Smh

      It doesn’t matter what school you attend if you are the National Defensive player of the year and on top of that you play in the SEC, the most physical conference in football. Just sayin’ what are you smoking brah?

      You’re absolutely tight. It doesn’t matter where someone played. That was my point. But the arrogance of ‘how could someone from Duke be picked over someone from Kentucky’ is ridiculous.

      Maybe you shouldn’t read KSR if that statement ruffled your feathers. I’ll take a pro bowl caliber edge rusher who can also drop back in pass coverage over an average starting qb any day.

      Ye, was there and he is only reason we went. After the 1st home game vs 49ers I put my Bungals tix for sale, swore I was done for this season as it was easy to see they are the worst team in the NFL. But did change plans because I really wanted to go see Josh play an NFL game after watching him from day 1 at UK through the Citrus Bowl. Glad I did as he is very good in limited play. He does not start and mostly comes in only on 3rd down passing plays {or some 2nd and long expected passing plays}. Does play a few full series but not many. Also Bungals did double him often with Gio helping and at times Price helped. Planning on going to Indy Nov 17 when Jax plays over there to watch Josh again. Torn on my Steelers tix as not sure how much Benny will play when that Nov 24 games comes around. Playing wait and see right now. GO JOSH.

      Not to mention often teams draft by what they feel is their biggest need, not the best player available. That happens all the time

    Josh Allen is a hell of a player, one of the best at UK ever. But no position in the pros is more important than the QB. As far as players from Bama, or more to the point in last years draft, OSU, a player who stands out among the great players there are going to benefit from it more come draft time. Are we creating faux outrage over this? Seriously? The outrage seems to be over Jones who seems to be proving himself quite capable of being a franchise QB. If I thought as the giants did, I’d take him too. Plus if worked out perfect for Allen. Jacksonville has some good young talent and moving in the right direction.
