Bills’ Josh Allen explains why he calls Dalton Kincaid a ‘stupid rookie’ after the Bills secured a win…

Kincaid was elated when he crossed the goal line for the first time in his NFL career, so much so that he decided to leap into the stands. However, there was a hitch: he felt claustrophobic in the crowd. He said, “So at that moment, I was like, okay, I’m ready to go back down. I think that’s everyone’s dream, scoring and jumping up there, celebrating, and then just celebrating with teammates. Super special moment.”

During the first half of their 24-18 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Bills had some memorable moments. Their offense finally found its rhythm, scoring 17 points in the first 30 minutes, capitalizing on three of their four possessions.

While Kincaid grappled with the confined space among dozens of Bills fans, quarterback Josh Allen joined the crowd. Allen mentioned that all rookies are often referred to as “stupid rookies” because they tend to have unpredictable tendencies on their first touchdown. He jokingly admitted to “stealing” the ball from Kincaid and handing it over to the equipment manager, Austin Skobel, who will preserve it and make it a special keepsake for Kincaid’s first touchdown.

Kincaid was targeted seven times in the game, securing five receptions for 65 yards and the touchdown. This game marked his first appearance since starting tight end Dawson Knox went on injured reserve following wrist surgery earlier in the week. With Knox expected to be sidelined for at least the next three games, Kincaid’s role in the offense is set to expand. He played approximately 83% of the snaps against the Buccaneers, as the Bills predominantly used an offensive formation with one tight end and one running back.

Bills coach Sean McDermott commended Kincaid’s contributions and encouraged him to continue growing as a player, emphasizing the importance of progress and self-improvement. McDermott noted the positive rapport between a tight end and a quarterback, expecting that their chemistry will only improve with more playing time.

Kincaid has appeared in seven games this season, missing one due to a concussion. In recent weeks, quarterback Josh Allen has increasingly targeted the rookie, and Kincaid’s confidence appears to be growing with each snap. Allen praised Kincaid’s impressive catch in the third quarter, highlighting the rookie’s athleticism and professionalism. The Bills are looking to integrate Kincaid more into the offense as the season progresses.
