Video: Bills get tricky with 20-yard Cole Beasley TD pass to Gabriel Davis
The Buffalo Bills have had more success throwing the ball this season, even when Josh Allen isn’t the one throwing it. In Buffalo’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Bills ran a trick play that resulted in a touchdown pass from Cole Beasley to Gabriel Davis.

The play began with Allen throwing a backward pass to Beasley on the right side of the field. Instead of advancing the ball down the field, Beasley uncorked a pass to a wide-open wide receiver in the end zone in Davis.
As a result, the Bills took a 14-6 lead over the Chargers and Justin Herbert. At the same time, Beasley attempted the third pass of his career (first with Buffalo) and it’s his first completion. Therefore, the first passing touchdown of his career came on his first career completion.
The underrated slot receiver has been productive for the Bills this season, catching 55 passes for 642 yards and three touchdowns prior to Sunday’s game. With the improvements from Allen, Beasley has seen an expanded role in the offense in his second year with the franchise.
On the other hand, Davis has performed well when his number has been called this season. The rookie fourth-round pick has now caught four touchdowns on the season, which is actually one more than the wide receiver that threw him the touchdown.
