On Thursday, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that most starters would play in this weekend’s game against the Denver Broncos. While fans love to see players like Josh Allen on the field, there is also the potential for injuries that will keep most holding their breath until the starters are out of this game.

The good news though is Josh Allen already gave fans a highlight reel play on the opening drive, which was his only action of the day. The offense was clicking on the opening drive with a good mix of pass and runs and got down to the 28-yard line.

Allen would take the snap and as the pocket started to collapse turned to run but didn’t run far as he quickly turned back around and found Gabe Davis running across the end zone. The third-year wide receiver would come down with the touchdown to give the Bills a 7-3 lead.

Gabe Davis is going to be a big part of the Buffalo Bills’ offense

The last time Gabe Davis was on a football field he was setting an NFL playoff record with four receiving touchdowns in the AFC Divisional Round Game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He appears to be picking up right where he left off as he catches the first touchdown pass of the preseason from Josh Allen.

The former fourth round pick has primarily been a part-time player in his first two years in the league. However, this season the Bills have paved the way for Davis to be the starter by not bringing in any veteran wide receivers like last year when they signed Emmanuel Sanders.

This looks to be setting up for a big season from Davis as defenses are going to pay a lot of attention to Stefon Diggs and this will give Gabe Davis plenty of winnable matchups during the season.
