Video: Bills’ Josh Allen throws game-winning 38-yard TD to John Brown
Things got off to a rough start for the Buffalo Bills in their 2019 NFL season opener against the New York Jets. Fortunately, they were able to end the AFC East showdown in spectacular fashion thanks to the efforts of quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver John Brown.
The Bills were able to seal the deal on their second-half comeback with a 38-yard touchdown pass from Allen to Brown in the fourth quarter:

Early on, it appeared as though the Bills were slated for a big afternoon when Allen started the game completing his first five passes. The drive then came to a screeching halt when he was sacked by linebacker Jordan Jenkins, which resulted in a fumble.
Allen’s woes on offense took a turn for the worst after a botched catch from wide receiver Cole Beasley resulted in a pick-6 for New York. The offense simply could not get anything going while being shut out in the first half.
Fortunately, the Bills’ offense was able to get some momentum going near the end of the third quarter. They finally got on the board with an 11-yard pass from Allen to Brown that set them up for a 43-yard field goal for kicker Steven Hauschka.
Allen finished the game completing 24-of-37 passes for 254 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. He also managed to tack on 10 carries for 38 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Brown had himself a day by hauling in seven receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown.
