The Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills are preparing to take each other on in Week 17. Critical to any team’s defensive success against Buffalo is slowing down Bills QB Josh Allen. Allen is one of the hardest in the league to defend, as he combines a rocket arm with the ability to take off and run with his legs. Defending Allen makes defensive coordinators want to pull their hair out, which is why Falcons DC Dean Pees offered his hilarious seven-word strategy on how to stop Allen.
Falcons DC Dean Pees was asked how to stop Buffalo QB Josh Allen.
Pees: “Don’t let him get off the bus.”

That sounds about right. As Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees said, don’t let Bills star Josh Allen get off the bus. Allen, 25, now has back-to-back seasons with over 4,000 yards passing, 35 touchdown passes and over 400 yards rushing.
There aren’t many quarterbacks in the NFL like Allen, which is why Pees jokingly suggested not letting the Bills star get off the bus.
Maybe Falcons fans and Pees can get together and find a way for the Bills bus driver to get lost with Allen on the bus! In all seriousness, Allen will be a tough test for a Falcons defense that has been improved from last year’s unit.
Josh Allen and the Bills have scored 30-plus points in each of their last two games, with Allen scoring a combined six touchdowns in those two contests. Dean Pees’ Falcons defense will certainly have their hands full come Sunday.
