Let’s revisit some of the best trick plays by the Buffalo Bills over the past two decades
The first day of April is often known for pranks and tricks but for the Buffalo Bills, they save most of their tricks for during the season. The Bills over the past few years have gotten creative with their play-calling and have forced defenses to be prepared for anything when trying to defend this offense.
Let’s take a look at some of the best trick plays for the Buffalo Bills over the past 20 years.
2005: J.P. Losman finds Jason Peters for his first career touchdown
The first trick play on this list came on the opening week of the 2005 season when the Buffalo Bills were playing the Houston Texans. This was the first career start for J.P. Losman, who was a first round pick in 2004, and the hope was he was going to become the franchise quarterback the team desperately was looking for.
The first touchdown pass for Losman would come right before the end of halftime as the quarterback found Jason Peters in the back of the end zone. At the time, Peters was a relatively unknown player as he entered the league as a tight end after the Bills signed him as an undrafted free agent. He would line up appearing as an extra offensive lineman to help with a run play but would slip behind the defense and come down with the touchdown.
Peters would eventually go on to have what should be a Hall of Fame career as a left tackle but one of his first career highlights was this touchdown catch from Losman, which was the only one of his career.
