Josh Allen's unprecedented TD pass vs. the Patriots had a precedent vs. the Patriots




 

With 5:27 left in the first half of the Buffalo Bills' Thursday night game against the New England Patriots, Josh Allen made one of those throws. You know, the ones only he and Patrick Mahomes can make these days. The eight-yard touchdown pass to receiver Gabe Davis was one of the most compelling of the 2022 NFL season. Allen rolled to his right, nearly went out of bounds, evaded linebacker Mack Wilson, and somehow corked one across his body where only Davis could come up with it.

How rare was this throw? Pretty darned.

But since we're talking about Josh Allen, it wasn't the first time he'd made this kind of throw with similar success… against a very similar opponent. Let's roll back to the 2021 wild-card playoffs, and Buffalo's 47-17 win on Saturday, January 15. With 9:45 left in the first quarter, Allen rolled to his right, nearly went out of bounds, evaded linebacker Kyle Van Noy, and somehow corked one across his body where only tight end Dawson Knox could come up with it

Interestingly enough, both of these throws resulted in eight-yard touchdowns.

So, just when you think Josh Allen has shown you something you've never seen before, it turns out that you might be watching a repeat performance.
