ORCHARD PARK — The Buffalo Bills got on the board early against the Washington Football Team on Sunday thanks to a 28-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Josh Allen to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders that gave Buffalo a 7-0 lead.
Allen bought extra time on the play by scrambling to the right and avoiding pressure. He then found Sanders downfield near the sideline with safety Landon Collins in coverage. The score was Sanders’ first as a Bill.
Allen has now thrown three of his four touchdowns this season from outside the pocket. He had eight touchdowns from outside the pocket last season, per ESPN Stats & Info.
What a beaut.
