The Buffalo Bills take on the Baltimore Ravens in what promises to be one of the best matchups of the Divisional Round. While plenty of playoff opponents have been trading pre-game jabs over the past few weeks, Josh Allen has elected to take a decidedly different route.

Check out this seriously high praise he gave to his Divisional Round opponent, Lamar Jackson.

I tell this to everybody I talk to about him — he is one of the greatest dudes you can be around. He really is... I root heavily for him, just knowing what he went through his first year, how he’s been able to do it, and how humble, how awesome he is off the field. He’s just one of those guys you root for.

That's quite the statement. And don't think his opinion of Jackson will change just because they'll be facing off this weekend.

And it’s hard to not root for him when we’re playing against him. But we’re enemies on Saturday, and we both know that. But he’s just one of those guys, again, I can’t say enough about just how good of a dude he is and it makes you love him that much more on the field.

Hearing Allen heap praise onto his playoff opponent is a refreshing change of pace.
