On Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, Gabriel Davis did something no NFL wide receiver before him had ever done. In catching eight passes for 201 yards and four touchdowns, Davis became the first player in NFL history to catch four touchdown passes in a playoff game. (He also became just the ninth player with 200 or more receiving yards in a playoff game.)

Davis was seemingly wide open all game long, as the Chiefs routinely rolled double-coverage toward Stefon Diggs on the opposite side of the field. Davis got his huge day started late in the second quarter, when he and Josh Allen connected on an 18-yard strike to tie the game at 14. 

Davis found himself wide open in the middle of the field after two Chiefs defensive backs (Mike Hughes and L'Jarius Sneed) ran into each other trying to pass off coverage in zone. 

Later in the game, the Bills went down by two scores for the first time. On the first play of their ensuing drive, Davis found himself streaking open down the seam on the right side of the field. He simply outran Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill on a post route, and Allen uncorked an absolute laser for a 75-yard score. 

The Bills trailed by five points late in the fourth quarter when Davis stepped up again. On the first play following the two-minute warning, Davis ran one of the best routes you will see any player run all season. He put Mike Hughes on skates and made him literally fall to the ground, notching a 27-yard score to give the Bills a late lead. 

When the Chiefs responded with a touchdown drive of their own, Davis stepped back into the spotlight. With 17 seconds left on the clock, Davis lined up in the slot and ran a skinny post. Allen calmly sat back in the pocket and fired yet another bullet over the middle for a 19-yard score. 

Unfortunately for the Bills, that play took only four seconds, which left the Chiefs 13 ticks to get down the field and tie the game with a field goal. They did exactly that, and then took the opening possession of overtime for another score, sending the Bills home early despite Davis' legendary performance.
