Josh Allen’s First TD Pass to Dawson Knox Was An Accident
How are we feeling Bills Mafia? The City of Buffalo has been waiting for a game like that for years.
The Buffalo Bills completely dismantled the New England Patriots last night, 47-17 in the AFC Wild Card Round in Orchard Park, in a game that was not only a blowout of Bill Belichick, but historic in the NFL's history as well.
The Bills became the first team in NFL history to play a perfect game on offense. Quarterback Josh Allen and the Bills scored a touchdown on all seven drives; never had a 4th down; never punted; never attempted a field goal; and did not turn the ball over once.
Allen had more touchdown passes (5) than incompletions (4) in last night's game, as the country talks about how amazing he is.
Two of Josh's touchdown passes went to tight end Dawson Knox, and the first touchdown of the game was actually the number one play on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays of the night.
Allen had nearly 10 seconds of time to throw the pass and when he did, after escaping to the right, it looked like to everyone in Highmark Stadium that he was throwing it away. Josh even admitted after the game that he meant to throw it away.
Knox said he thought he had a shot at it and grabbed it. When he got back to the sideline, he thanked Allen, but Josh said he was throwing it away.
It looked to me Josh was throwing it away. The crowed roared in surprise when Knox caught it. Reminiscent of the Joe Montana touchdown pass to tight end Dwight Clark in the NFC Championship game in 1981 between the 49ers and Cowboys.
The Bills now wait to see if they play the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium or the Cincinnati Bengals back at Highmark Stadium.
