After speaking to reporters following the 47-17 loss to the Bills Saturday night, Bill Belichick went into the visitors locker room.

Belichick wanted to find Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen, who had one of the best playoff performances in recent memory. Allen was 21-for-25 passing for 308 yards and five touchdowns to go along with 66 rushing yards.

Appearing on The Pat McAfee Show Thursday, Allen was asked about the conversation with Belichick.

“He came up to me, which is really cool," he said. "I’ve got a lot of respect for him and what he’s done over his career and obviously he’s one of the, if not the, greatest coach of all-time. So for him to come up to me after a game and give me some kudos and dap me up, meant a lot to me just knowing the type of coach that he is, the type of players that he’s been around, coached, and obviously the success that he’s had throughout his career. It was a pretty cool moment for me.”

Any specifics on what was said?

“Just more respect like, ‘What you did out there was awesome. You played well tonight. We didn’t have an answer,’" Allen said. "Again, I shared respect right back, obviously, because I’m a big fan of his and I could go on and on about the accolades that he has. But again, for a coach to do that, that high caliber, was pretty special.”

The Bills will take on the Chiefs this weekend in the divisional round.
