It’s well-known that Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is a dual-threat talent destined for greatness, however, and after his appearance at the 2022 NFL Honors, the 25-year-old made it clear his talents also include comedic timing.
While Allen missed out on winning the annual Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award, that honor went to New England Patriots’ 10-time Pro Bowler and three-time Super Bowl champion Matthew Slater, the Bills quarterback still managed to steal the show.
During the ceremony, NFL Honors host Keegan-Michael Key approached Allen sitting in the front row to discuss how with “such a great show like this… you just want it to go on and on and on….” hinting at the league’s controversial overtime rules. “Am I right Josh Allen?” Key asked.
“Or,” Allen replied, pausing to take a direct look at the camera, “You just end it in a way that makes sense, is fair, and gives everyone an opportunity to win.”
As Allen shrugged his shoulders with a smile, the crowd cheered. Shortly afterward, a clip of this moment was posted on Twitter and Instagram, racking up hundreds of thousands of views overnight.
