One might think that Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is used to loud group of fans. He plays in Buffalo in front of Bills Mafia after all, right?

Well sure, he does… but when fans in Buffalo are loud watching the game? Allen’s doing the same thing.

He’s on the sideline and when he is on the field, the crowd in Orchard Park smartly quiets down.

Now looking ahead to Week 5, it gives Allen flashbacks to the environment he faced in the AFC title game last year in Kansas City. He knows from experience that the full Chiefs crowd, as compared to the limited one from last postseason due to COVID-19, is going to be beyond loud.

“Maybe the most hostile environment I’ve ever played in,” Allen said via video conference. “Kansas City, it’s known for being extremely loud. Really, whatever you expect, it’s not going to even amount to what it’s going to be. We’ve got to be on point.”

“My voice is probably going to be pretty horse after the game,” Allen added. “As far as stadiums in the NFL goes, Arrowhead is always at the top of the list in terms of loudest by decibel and it happens the entire game, every snap you’re on offense, it’s going to be extremely loud.”

In that mentioned contest, the Bills lost 38-24. The team missed out on an opportunity to play in the Super Bowl because of it.

But if the Bills have their way, the offense is going to take an attitude, as a whole, like wide receiver Stefon Diggs is.

Diggs admitted that he “hated” the way that game ended. Everyone, Diggs included, can recall the photo of him watching the Chiefs celebrate the win.

Week 5 is a brand new day for the wideout, though. Not only is he confident, he can’t even explain it, that’s how good he’s feeling about the Buffalo offense right now.

“Um… what’s the maximum confidence you can have?,” Diggs said via video conference. “I’m gonna just say, we’re more so– I would say you always want to have confidence– but we’re more so on the worker bee mindset. As far as like each and every week is a “get better,” not, “we are where we need to be.” We’re never where we need to be.”

And Diggs said to bring on Chiefs Kingdom, too.

“I’m all about the hostile environment. I’m pretty chill right now but as far as when it’s time to go, I love everything about it. I love not being able to hear, you know what I’m saying? It’s more so reacting and just hoopin’,” Diggs said. “I’ve played in some loud stadiums. Seattle’s pretty loud. I’d say Arrowhead is up there, like top three.”

“It’s just something about those moments that you get a little rush, you know what I’m saying?” Diggs added. “As far as trying to silence the crowd and being on the other end. It’s so loud that, it’s kind of weird to say, but it’s so loud that it’s quiet. You don’t got nothing but your thoughts and really just the man in front of you.”

If the entire Bills roster can channel their inner-Diggs mindset in Week 5, how could they lose?
