ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- To think it all started with a miscommunication.
In Week 1 of the 2019 season, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen threw receiver Cole Beasley a pass he wasn't expecting. Determined not to let that happen again, they discussed the route ad nauseam afterward. That paid off in Sunday's wild 35-32 win against the Los Angeles Rams.
Allen found Beasley for a first down on third-and-22 during the fourth quarter. It was perhaps the team's biggest play of the young season after Los Angeles roared back from a 28-3 deficit to take the lead.
