Jaguars' Ramsey grudgingly credits Bills' Allen

The "trash" quarterback topped the trash-talker on Sunday as Josh Allen's Buffalo Bills earned a 24-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and cornerback Jalen Ramsey in Orchard Park, N.Y.

Ramsey made headlines last summer when he criticized the Bills' selection of Allen with the No. 7 overall pick in the draft, telling GQ magazine, "I think Allen is trash. I don't care what nobody say. He's trash. And it's gonna show, too. That's a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I'm excited as hell. I hope he's their starting quarterback."

On Sunday, Allen did much of his damage with his legs instead of his arm, producing 99 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He completed just 8 of 19 passes for 160 yards and a TD without throwing an interception.

Ramsey said postgame, "He did enough to get their team the win. ... Not a lot of (passing stats) ... but I know he ran the ball really well. He hurt us with his feet. Passing, it didn't feel like a lot of opportunities. We've got to watch the film and stuff like that. They did have one deep one on us that hurt us early in the first quarter. Other than that, he was causing damage with his feet."

Asked if he still agrees with his "trash" assessment, Ramsey said, "The good thing about the world we live in is everyone can have an opinion. I stick by my opinions usually. It was with his feet. He did enough for their team to get a win. That's really what matters at the end of the day. So it doesn't matter what I said or anything like that. I'm sure that's what he was thinking on his side, it doesn't matter."

Ramsey, who was credited with four tackles Sunday, met up with Allen postgame.

Allen said of the encounter, "Just shook my hand, dapped me up and said, 'Good job.' As competitors, when things happen, we want to compete. He's an ultimate competitor, just like myself. Maybe it's a respect thing, not really sure."
