Now, according to The National Football League, this will be the 4th time in history that an offensive player and defensive player with the exact same name have faced each other.  And, in one of those other meetings, a Buffalo Bill was involved!

"Week 1, 1950, Eagles QB Tommy Thompson vs. Browns LB Tommy Thompson

Week 12, 1950, Eagles QB Tommy Thompson vs. Browns LB Tommy Thompson

Week 7, 1997, Bills QB Todd Collins vs. Patriots LB Todd Collins"

But, as far as we can tell, this is going to be the first time that two former 1st round picks, who share the same name, have met up against each other on opposite sides of the ball.

Our Josh Allen is having a great season so far for the Bills completing 65.4% of his attempts,  for 1,972 yards and 17 touchdowns with just 3 interceptions.

Jacksonville's Josh Allen is having a good year himself with 4.5 QB sacks, bringing his career total to 17.5,

So get ready for some history this Sunday at TIAA Bank Field. We'll have to wait and see which Josh Allen gets the best of the other.  Right now, The Bills sit as 14.5 point favorites according to sports betting site Fan Duel.
