ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Former high school quarterback Cole Beasley looked like his old self Sunday, when the Buffalo Bills wide receiver threw the first touchdown pass of his NFL career against the Los Angeles Chargers.
After motioning behind quarterback Josh Allen on second-and-8 from the Chargers' 20-yard line, Beasley fielded a short pitch from Allen after the ball was snapped. Beasley then lofted the ball to an open Gabriel Davis in the end zone to push the Bills' lead to 14-6 midway through the second quarter.
Beasley joins fellow Bills receiver Isaiah McKenzie as the only non-quarterbacks to throw for a touchdown this season. The rest of the NFL has three such passes this season, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
Including playoffs, the Bills' 4 pass TDs by non-QBs since 2018 (Brian Daboll's first season in Buffalo) is tied with the Dolphins for most in the NFL, according to @ESPNStatsInfo— Marcel Louis-Jacques (@Marcel_LJ) November 29, 2020
