Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen #17 throws a pass during pregame warmups before a game against the New York Jets at Highmark Stadium on January 09, 2022 in Orchard Park, New York.

One of the biggest storylines leading up to the Buffalo Bills’ AFC Wild Card playoff game against the New England Patriots on Saturday, Jan. 15 is the predicted weather report.

With temperatures expected in the single digits at Highmark Stadium by the 8:15 p.m. kickoff, Bills quarterback Josh Allen revealing he’s been suffering from poor circulation and the team’s minimal options when it comes to running back – this is an important topic to discuss.

While it may seem superfluous to note how cold it will be in Buffalo in January, Allen’s accuracy drops dramatically in bad weather. Athleticism‘s Matthew Fairburn reported: “Allen has played five games in his career where the temperature at kickoff was 31 degrees or lower. The Bills are 3-2 in those games, and Allen has a 50.3% completion percentage with 883 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions.

While bad weather will obviously affect the Patriots’ performance as well, “the difference is that the Bills rely on their passing game a lot more than the Patriots do,” Fairburn noted.


ESPN analyst and former NFL linebacker says Allen should take Viagra to stay warm

While most players rely on heaters and huge winter coats to stay warm on the sidelines, Bart Scott, who hosts ESPN Get up, suggested Allen take a blue pill approach for Saturday’s AFC Wild Card playoff game.

Scott, who played in the NFL for 11 years with the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets, knows what it’s like to play in freezing temperatures and said he takes Viagra before games for the help keep warm.

While the pill is known to help with erectile dysfunction, Scott suggested Allen take Viagra for its side effects.

“Take some Viagra before the game, baby,” Scott said. “It’ll get the circulation going…Viagra started out as heart medicine, right? Thus, it accumulates circulation, which ensures circulation to the feet. I swear, I’m not trying to be funny.

Scott mentioned he wasn’t the only player to take the blue pill before games “because Viagra opens up your blood vessels”, and indeed former NFL star Chad Ochocinco has repeatedly said in the past that he had taken the blue pill before games.

Viagra, a brand name of Sildenafil, is not on the official NFL list prohibited substances.

According to NRPB, Viagra relaxes the walls of men’s blood vessels, “which in turn allows blood to flow seamlessly through the body”, especially to the part of the body protected by a jockstrap.

Although getting an accidental erection is probably a major concern, “Viagra begins to work between one and two hours after oral intake,” the NRPB reported. “However, taking Viagra alone will not result in an erection. Men still need to be sexually aroused for Viagra to work.


Bills Tight End Dawson responded to Scott’s suggestion to take Viagra as a PED

Bills tight end Dawson Knox was speaking to the media on Thursday, Jan. 13, when asked whether or not he would go along with Scott’s Viagra suggestion.

Dawson Knox noted that he’s heard that Viagra can make a player test positive for PEDs, so he’s not going to try that trick to stay warm against the Patriots on Saturday night.

While Viagra can show up on a drug test, for ASIP1, it should be specifically researched, and since the blue pill is not a banned substance, this shouldn’t be a problem.

Knox also said he would need a prescription to take Viagra and clarified that he did not have said prescription.
