ORCHARD PARK, NY – One hand was all it took for tight end Dawson Knox to get the Buffalo Bills’ postseason going on Sunday.
On first-and-goal from the Miami Dolphins’ 6-yard line, quarterback Josh Allen faked a pass from running back Devin Singletary and ran to his right in an attempt to find an open receiver. Allen found Knox in one-on-one coverage near the front corner of the end zone and threw a dart on the run.
Insane throwing. Crazy catch.

Knox reached out and caught the pass with one hand as he fell to the ground, just managing to stay in bounds. The Bills went up 7-0 in the first quarter of the AFC wild card game against the Dolphins. The Bills quickly added their first score when safety Dean Marlow caught a 12-yard rushing touchdown by rookie James Cook to extend the lead to 14-0.
This marks Knox’s fifth straight game with a touchdown reception. Knox is the first Bills player to catch a touchdown in five straight games (regular season and playoffs combined) since Stevie Johnson from Weeks 3-8 in 2010.
The score was set up by a 52-yard pass from Allen to wide receiver Stefon Diggs on a third-and-15 play. The pass to Diggs had a 15.6% success rate.
