Josh Allen finds Gabe Davis for Buffalo Bills first TD of the 2022 season
The last time the Buffalo Bills were on the field, wide receiver Gabe Davis was setting an NFL record with four receiving touchdowns in a playoff game. He continued that in the preseason with a touchdown reception on the only drive Josh Allen was on the field.
The connection continues to be a problem for opposing defenses as Josh Allen was able to find Gabe Davis for a touchdown on the opening drive of the 2022 season against the Los Angeles Rams.
It was a great play design as the Buffalo Bills found themselves in a 3rd and short situation where the Bills would fake a handoff to Zack Moss to the left and bring Josh Allen back right to make it look like he was going to try and pick up the first with his legs.
As Allen is rolling out, Gabe Davis was able to slip behind the defense and the Los Angeles Rams lost him in coverage. It was a simple pitch and catch for Allen and Davis to get the Buffalo Bills on the board first and up 7-0.
Ken Dorsey deserves a lot of credit for the play-calling on the opening drive for the Buffalo Bills
One of the big questions this season was how would Ken Dorsey do as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. He took over for Brian Daboll, who became head coach of the New York Giants, but has never called plays before in the NFL.
On that opening drive, Dorsey showed a good balance of run and pass but more importantly kept the Bills in plus situations in terms of down and distance. He also made it a point to get the ball out of Josh Allen’s hands quickly when considering they have to account for Aaron Donald.
There is still plenty of football left but this was a great start for the Buffalo Bills on the road.
