[BN] Blitz newsletter: Josh Allen faces Brady & Belichick for the first time

When The News visited Josh Allen in his hometown of Firebaugh, Calif. last spring, he marveled at the prospect of  becoming the Bills starting quarterback and competing against one of the all-time greats, Tom Brady.

"Now I get to play him twice a year," Allen said. "And beat him twice a year."

Allen missed his first opportunity to beat Brady and the Patriots due to injury but he'll get his chance today when the Bills visit New England.
