This weekend, the Buffalo Bills play the Baltimore Ravens. It’s one of their biggest games of the season but Josh Allen isn’t going to get too worked up for the game
Week 14 brings a pretty big opponent into Western New York as the Buffalo Bills will be hosting the Baltimore Ravens. Not only do the Ravens come in with an AFC leading 10-2 record, but they’re also on a league-leading eight-game winning streak.
For the 9-3 Bills, this is a huge test for them as they approach the playoffs. Despite their record, no one wants to give them the respect they deserve — which is why a win here would be huge for them.
However, quarterback Josh Allen doesn’t see it that way. The second-year signal-caller not only said this isn’t a ‘huge’ game in his mind, but that he will approach it just like any other weekend.

"“I wouldn’t consider it a huge game,” Allen said on the NFL Network via Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports. “Everybody wants to make a big deal out of it. Obviously we’re going against a great team and obviously it’s going to be a four-quarter grudge match, it’s gonna take 60 minutes to go get this thing."
Clearly, this is the best approach to any game. The Bills don’t need to try and treat any team as if they are a litmus test. Instead, they need to continue to do what they have done every game this season — go out there and play with all they have for 60 minutes.
So far this season, that’s led them to their impressive record. They’re also the No. 5 seed in the AFC and are still in striking distance of the New England Patriots for the AFC East.
However, even with all that being said, the Bills would do a lot to gain respect with a win here. So far their schedule hasn’t put them against elite teams and their biggest win was in Week 13 over the Dallas Cowboys — who look to be in full implosion mode.
Knocking off the high-powered Ravens would be huge for them, even if Allen doesn’t want to approach it that way.
