The Buffalo Bills defeated the Los Angeles Rams 31-10 on Thursday night in both teams’ season opener.
Because L.A. is the defending champ, and as a result of Buffalo being widely regarded as a Super Bowl frontrunner this year, all eyes were on the match-up.
The big star of the night proved to be Bills quarterback Josh Allen. And although his stat line of 297 yards through the air, three scores and two picks on 26-of-31 passing speaks for itself – it’s his incredible stiff arm highlight that really stole the show and also caught his girlfriend Brittany Williams’ eye.
THIS JOSH ALLEN STIFF ARM WAS FILTHY 🤧

Williams was so taken aback by what her beau did to Rams defensive back Nick Scott that she immediately took to Instagram to address it:
Hilariously enough, Scott wasn’t even Allen’s biggest victim of the evening. Rather, that honor goes to Rams defensive back Jalen Ramsey.
Heading into Thursday night, since being drafted in 2016, Ramsey had only allowed a perfect NFL Passer Rating of 158.3 as the nearest defender once in his career. That changed this week, however, when Allen carved him up.
Allen targeted Ramsey seven times. He wound up going 6-of-7 for 124 yards and two scores in the process.
Making matters worse for Ramsey is that he once famously called Allen “trash” and said he wouldn’t be a good pro.
“I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash,” Ramsey said in an interview with GQ. “I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me.”
So much for that theory.
As for Williams, she had quite the eventful night of her own. A photo of her and Matthew Stafford’s wife, Kelly, went mega-viral – for obvious reasons.
Big picture, if Thursday night was a taste of what’s to come for Allen – he and Williams are headed for a massive 2022-23 NFL campaign.
Like MVP-caliber stuff.

Is a Super Bowl title in their near future?
Time will tell, but at the moment it’s looking like the answer is “yes.”
