While the reason why Allen is wearing Fitzpatrick’s jersey has not been revealed publicly, many may wonder whether the Bills quarterback is paying tribute to a viral clip of Fitzpatrick from last year’s Bills-Patriots match.
The retired quarterback attended the AFC Wild Card match between the two teams in January. The Bills won 47-17, and Fitzpatrick chose to take his shirt off while celebrating his former team’s win.
Images and videos taken of Fitzpatrick in the cold stands went viral shortly after.
