ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- After setting records with his three turnovers earlier in the game against the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen bounced back in a big way with one of his best passes of the day to stretch the Bills' lead.
Allen stepped back in the pocket late in the third quarter and, despite pressure closing in, threw a perfect pass to wide receiver Gabe Davis, who just got two feet down before running out of bounds. The score gave the Bills a 34-24 lead. Allen now has three career playoff game with 300 passing yards and three passing touchdowns, the most in Bills history.

Meanwhile, tight end Dawson Knox got the Bills' postseason started with a bang Sunday.
On first-and-goal in the first quarter from the Miami Dolphins' 6-yard line, quarterback Josh Allen faked the handoff to running back Devin Singletary and scrambled to his right, trying to find an open receiver. Allen located Knox in one-on-one coverage near the front corner of the end zone and threw a dart on the run.

Knox reached out and caught the pass one-handed as he fell to the ground, just managing to stay in bounds.
This marks Knox's fifth straight game with a receiving touchdown. Knox is the first Bills player with a receiving touchdown in five straight games (regular season and playoffs combined) since Stevie Johnson during 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 completion probability of 15.6% -- the most improbable completed pass of Allen's career, per NFL NextGen Stats.
