The NFL got a real-life version of the Spider-Man pointing meme on Sunday.
Jacksonville Jaguars pass rusher Josh Allen made NFL history in the second quarter of the team’s Week 9 matchup against the Buffalo Bills when he sacked … Josh Allen.
OK, let’s rewind.
The Bills drafted Josh Allen, a quarterback out of Wyoming, with the No. 7 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Jaguars drafted Josh Allen, an outside linebacker out of Kentucky, with the No. 7 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
This is the first time the two players have matched up in the NFL, and the Jags’ Josh Allen became the first player to sack another player with the same name.
Not sure how many other opportunities there have been for that to happen, but it’s a nifty trivia fact, nonetheless.
The Jags’ Josh Allen wasn’t done making plays against his Bills counterpart. He picked off the QB late in the third quarter, too.
The interception helped the Jaguars keep the game tied at 6-6 and put the team in plus territory.
With the Jags holding a 9-6 lead, their Josh Allen created ANOTHER turnover in the fourth quarter against the opposite Josh Allen. The pass rusher recovered a fumble from the quarterback as the Bills were driving into Jaguars territory.
The play went a long way in giving the Jags a 9-6 win, just their second victory of the season.
