After the game, Allen talked about his relationship with offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and how they are a lot alike and both competitive by nature.
“It means the world to me to know that he trusts me enough to listen to my input,” Allen said. “He’s been doing a great job of calling plays for us. And we’ve been doing a good job of executing. But when it’s a play I suggest to him and he calls it and it hits, it feels a little extra special. I love him, not just as a coach but as a person. He’s an awesome dude. He’s one of the best if not the best offensive coordinators in the game right now. Just the innovative way that he finds to get the ball to our guys, it’s fun to be a part of. He’s a lot like me in our personalities. We’re very competitive. His mind’s always spinning. He’s calling me at nine o’clock at night, talking about certain plays that he likes. I’m just glad I’ve been able to have him for the last three years and see our relationship grow.”
