2023 was a year of notable NFL romances. There was Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs and Taylor Swift, whose romance captivated mainstream media and became one of the year’s most discussed couples. Prior to Kelce and Swift, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen stirred romantic speculations with Hollywood starlet Hailee Steinfeld. While the couple has yet to openly declare their relationship as of this writing, they have been seen together frequently and are receiving a lot of support from their friends and family.
Steinfeld has built quite a resume since her debut in the entertainment sector. She had her first break as Mattie Ross in the 2010 film “True Grit” and went on to star in numerous other popular projects, including “Romeo and Juliet” in 2013, “Pitch Perfect 2” in 2015, and “Pitch Perfect 3” in 2017. While Steinfeld has numerous acting credentials, she has also made an effect in the music industry, with hit songs such as “Starving” and “Love Myself.” Both stars in their own way, Allen and Steinfeld appear to have hit it off, and Allen’s teammates believe their relationship is the finest thing that could have happened to him.
Josh Allen’s teammates offer nothing but nice remarks.
Hailee Steinfeld and Josh Allen sparked the rumor mill in May 2023 when they were pictured out and about in New York City. The photos were released shortly after Allen announced the end of his relationship with ex-girlfriend Brittany Williams. Since the couple was initially sighted together, neither has publicly confirmed to dating, but Steinfeld has been seen at nearly every Buffalo Bills football game since. While her presence in the stands may have been disturbing to the quarterback, Allen’s teammates appear to approve. When asked about Allen’s alleged relationship with Steinfeld in summer 2023, teammate Mitch Morse responded, “He’s had a good few months, ya know?” (via Heavy
Teammate Dion Dawkins seems to think Steinfeld has made Allen’s life better. “Mentally, he’s there,” Dawkins told reporters in January (via Heavy). “And whatever it is off the field, I think it’s helping him tremendously. Dawkins didn’t mention Steinfeld’s name, but praised Allen’s attitude, saying: “Whatever that energy source is that he has off the football field now, it has his best foot forward. Josh comes in the building every day just with a different energy about himself … Whether it’s talking to his parents, or talking to his girl… it’s putting him in a better spirit. I love it and it’s flowing over to game days.”
It isn’t just Allen’s teammates who seem to approve of his romance with Steinfeld; in October 2023, the “Bumblebee” actress was photographed with Allen’s mom buying Buffalo Bills merchandise at the Leveled Up Buffalo Shop in East Aurora, New York. The two took a picture with the store owner and were all smiles as they loaded up on Bills items.
The constant attention was tough on Josh Allen
Despite the fact that Josh Allen rose to prominence as a Buffalo Bills player, the news that he might be dating Hailee Steinfeld catapulted him to new heights of celebrity. Allen had never been photographed in public before, and he was not pleased with all of the attention and comments that came with the relationship rumors. He disclosed the adjustments during an appearance on the “Pardon My Take” podcast, after the two were caught cozying up on a vacation together.
“The fact that anybody still cares about that blows my mind,” he went on to say. “I simply had this terrible feeling. Insecurity. No privacy. “I was like, ‘What is wrong with people?'”
While the unwanted attention from the media may be a drawback of Allen dating Steinfeld, the support they received from his team and family appears to exceed the difficulties. Steinfeld and Allen have not spoken publicly about their relationship, but the fact that she continues to attend practically every Buffalo Bills game suggests that the couple is still going strong.
