The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills this past weekend in one of the most memorable NFL games of all time. In doing so, they earned a place in the AFC Championship Game this coming Sunday and nullified what was an incredible showing by quarterback Josh Allen.
Allen did everything imaginable to secure a victory for Buffalo in the divisional round. In the end, it came down to something outside of his control – who got the ball first in overtime.
Fortunately, despite being on the wrong of a crushing defeat, Allen seems to be handling the situation with poise and grace. One thing that has aided him along the way?
How his girlfriend, Brittany Williams, has consoled him.
Williams has been a nonstop provider of emotional support for the Bills star, and it was more of the same following last Sunday’s sad outcome.
This week she took to Instagram to send a very public heartfelt message to her beau.
“So much to be proud of… It’s amazing watching you put your head down and work every day to be the best teammate, leader, and football player you can be,” she wrote.
“Through the ups & downs of this season, you remained calm and confident and it showed every time you stepped on the field. I really don’t know how you balance everything, but you always do it with a smile on your face and with the biggest heart. I love you.”
Williams has more than 100,000 followers on Instagram and routinely goes viral. She could easily reserve space on her page just to promote herself, but instead she opts to support Allen in his time of need.
Interestingly enough, a lot of Williams’ posts have blown up lately:
No doubt that is at least partially due to Allen’s growing profile and increasing success in the NFL.
And when you take into account that Williams doesn’t pose for the sort of scandalous photos that Christian McCaffrey’s better half Olivia Culpo regularly publishes and has never gotten her partner’s name on her butt like Dak Prescott’s girlfriend unforgettably did, her fan count is actually pretty remarkable.

Big picture, this probably isn’t the last we’ve heard from Allen or Williams.
The Bills will dominate the AFC East for years to come, and as such, both of them will likely be a part of the cultural zeitgeist for a long time to come.
