Bills' WR John Brown threw this touchdown pass on a trick play Thursday.

The Buffalo Bills led the Dallas Cowboys 13-7 at the half in the early-evening Thanksgiving Day game, and part of that came thanks to an unusual passer. Receiver John Brown caught two passes himself earlier in the half, but he put the Bills into the lead with a 28-yard trick play pass after a double handoff, finding running back Devin Singletary wide open at the five-yard line for an easy touchdown:

As noted there, that was the first-ever NFL pass thrown by Brown (who’s in his sixth year in the league). And he doesn’t even have much of a history of playing quarterback; he was mostly a receiver and returner in high school, college, and then the pros. But this clever play design got Brown wide open to throw and meant that Singletary was uncovered deep. It was a nice first-half highlight for the Bills, and a big part of why they were up 13-7 at the half.
