1. Josh Allen to appear on CBS Sports' In the Huddle with Tony Romo
Sports isn't back just yet, but Bills fans have something to look forward to this weekend. Josh Allen will be featured in CBS Sports’ In the Huddle with Tony Romo. The show will air on Sunday, May 24 at 2:00 p.m. ET on CBS. Allen is also joined by Jets quarterback Sam Darnold and Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. In the 30-minute special, Romo talks with the three QBs about expectations of younger quarterbacks and preparing for next season virtually. Allen shared in a preview clip how he has been studying his own film this offseason to grow.
"Going back and watching the good, the bad, the ugly from last season," Allen said. "And finding out now that I'm talking with Coach Dorsey, we're able to do virtual meetings and watch film, it's like why are my eyes in this place? Why did I start to the left side when I knew it was cover 2, and I should have started to the right. So I'm trying to find ways to eliminate those and eliminate what the defense can't be playing as opposed to trying to find out what they are playing."
The show will also touch on their lives off-the-field. CBS Sports lead reporter Tracy Wolfson will host the show. CBS Sports, Romo and the three QBs are assisting in the NFL's relief efforts of COVID-19 by supporting places like American Red Cross, CDC Foundation, Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, Salvation Army and United Way.
2. Are Devin Singletary and Zack Moss the next thunder and lightning duo?
Former NFL running back and current NFL Network analyst Maurice Jones-Drew joined One Bills Live this week to discuss what he thinks of Buffalo's offseason additions. MJD thinks Buffalo's third-round pick in running back Zack Moss is similar to a couple former Bills.
"When you look at his tapes he is definitely one of the top backs in the country coming out of college," Jones-Drew explained. "He has the ability to be a home run hitter. I would put him more in the lines of a slower Marshawn Lynch, more of a Frank Gore when he first came out. He has great vision and can get skinny through holes. That was one of Frank's abilities he could get skinny and anticipate the cuts and the holes, but he always falls forward and he runs hard. We know what it's like to be in Buffalo in November and December. You want a guy that's going to be able to break tackles and to do some different things."
MJD thinks the pair of Moss and Singletary can be something special when looking at how the strengths of each running back complement eachother.
"To be quite frank, it's a great pick," MJD said. "I have been part of a thunder-lightning role in Jacksonville. You can obviously have Zack Moss as your thunder guy and then you can have Devin Singletary as your quick lightning guy who's able to make people miss. He had a really good year last year. I thought it was an amazing pick. I think Zack Moss catches the ball well out of the backfield, he's a tough runner, has great short-area quickness and he finds ways to get first downs and touchdowns in that short red zone."
3. Two Bills make this top 100 list
CBS Sports' Pete Prisco released his list of the top 100 NFL players of 2020. Sifting through more than 1,500 NFL players, Prisco weened it down to a fraction of that which includes two Bills players. Not a shock that the cornerback who had six interceptions in 2019, Tre'Davious White, made the list.
No. 52 Tre'Davious White
After a so-so 2018 season, he bounced back last season to play at a high level on the corner. He's a good man cover player who is ascending.
New Bills WR Stefon Diggs, who has had back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons, also made the top 100 due to his ability to rack up yards and score.
No. 91 Stefon Diggs
He had 63 catches for the Vikings last season, but eight were for 40 yards or more. That's big-play ability. He will add a lot to the Bills offense.
