Buffalo Bills rookie offensive linemen Cody Ford is not afraid to stick up for his quarterback.
Late in the second quarter, Giants linebacker Lorenzo Carter brought down Bills quarterback Josh Allen to the ground after Allen threw the ball.
Something that Ford didn’t like.
He went after Carter and it resulted in a 15 yard unnecessary roughness penalty.
Cody Ford’s message after the game? He has his QB’s back.
Ford told WGRZ’s J.T. Messinger: “I just had to let him know that I got my QB’s back, and if anything else goes down, I’m here.”
Josh Allen talked about Ford’s response after the game- nothing but appreciation.
“He’s the man, I appreciate what he did for me there. To have guys stick up for you, Coach can say that was a bad penalty and it kind of put us back but as a quarterback I love when linemen kind of stick up for you I will take care of him.”
