BUFFALO Bills star Josh Allen called out LeBron James by name during a play call that was picked up by the live TV broadcast.
The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback, 27, shouted the NBA legend’s name on the field during London’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Jacksonville led 11-0 in the second quarter.
With one minute and 29 seconds left, the Bills’ offense found itself at the Jaguars’ 25-yard line after eight offensive plays.
And in the second and third rounds, Allen called out “LeBron James” twice during an audible announcement.
His words were picked up on the NFL Network’s live broadcast.
However, the play would result in an incomplete pass to the right side.
But two plays later, Allen would find Stefon Diggs for a 15-yard touchdown, capping an 11-play drive.
It was the Bills’ first touchdown of the game after punting the ball on the previous four drives.
Meanwhile, fans were thrilled by Allen’s nod to Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron during the NFL game.
