Josh Allen finds Gabe Davis for a 98-yard touchdown to tie a Buffalo Bills franchise record

The Buffalo Bills looked like they were on their way to a disastrous start to Week 5 after Taiwan Jones struggled on the opening kickoff and barely got out of the end zone. The Bills started the drive on the two-yard line and had an incompletion to Devin Singletary and then Singletary picked up zero yards on a rushing attempt.

On third down, it was Josh Allen who added another play to a growing list of highlight plays where he was able to find Gabe Davis down the field for a 98-yard touchdown reception. This pass ties a franchise record for the longest touchdown pass in Buffalo Bills’ history.

Josh Allen ties Ryan Fitzpatrick for longest touchdown in Buffalo Bills history

The touchdown pass by Josh Allen ties Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw a 98-yard touchdown pass back in 2009 to Terrell Owens against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

This was an incredible play by Allen but it was also great to see from Gabe Davis. The third-year wide receiver has struggled recently after a promising performance in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams when he had 88 receiving yards and a touchdown.

However, Davis has been dealing with an ankle injury that forced him to miss Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans. He returned against the Miami Dolphins but in that game and then against the Baltimore Ravens, Davis hasn’t made the same impact. He has combined to have four receptions and 50 receiving yards in those two games.

It would stand to reason that the ankle injury continued to bother him but it looks like the injury is officially behind him after that play. He was able to run past, and then away, from the Pittsburgh Steelers defenders to find the end zone and give Buffalo an early 7-0 lead.
