Gabriel Davis: I would’ve scored five touchdowns vs. Chiefs under new overtime rule

AFC Divisional Playoffs - Buffalo Bills v Kansas City Chiefs

Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis is confident the Chiefs’ defense was never going to stop him in their playoff game last season.

Davis had four touchdowns in that game, an overtime loss in Kansas City, and upon learning about the NFL’s new rule guaranteeing both teams a possession in postseason overtime, Davis immediately insisted he would have scored another touchdown if given another chance.

“I would’ve had five touchdowns that game,” Gabriel said in a video posted by the Bills.

There’s a good chance that Davis would have had that fifth touchdown, as both teams’ offenses were unstoppable late in that Bills-Chiefs game. It’s even possible that Davis could have scored a sixth touchdown, although that would have required the Bills to stop the Chiefs’ offense first.

  1. Instead of your 5th TD I would’ve rather seen the Defense make their 1st stop.

  2. He had whoever was covering him on roller skates that game. He was basically unguardable. He may have had 5 TD’s, but he had 4 and the defense couldn’t hold them for 13 seconds.

  3. Bills players “We have 100 percent moved on from the Chiefs playoff game.”

    Also Bills Players *cannot stop talking about Chiefs playoff game*

  4. Ifa, coulda, shoulda, woulda. That season is over. New season starts tonight with the draft.

  5. You are probably right Davis, but the new rule still cannot hide teams with terrible defenses. I look at teams in the playoffs with bad defenses like paper towels, they all eventually end up in the trash can, even the ones with the great commercials. The NFL is trying to add the quicker picker upper into the mix, but like I said they all end up in the trash can.

  6. And then KC would have gotten the ball back and scored another TD and we’d be right back at square one with the OT problem

  7. Just like the Bills fans, blathering and bragging about things they haven’t done.

  8. Davis is gonna blow up this season. As crazy as it is for me to say this, the kid might be the best receiver on the Bills.

  9. “ I would’ve scored five touchdowns…” Congrats! Kelce and Hill were unstoppable as well. Tell us about your defense though at the end of the game. You know, the one that gave up two big pass plays to set the Chiefs up for the tie. Now tell us about how the Chiefs had five straight pass completions in overtime. Would’ve, could’ve, should’ve. You lost.

    It’s brutal. It’s why they’ll never win as a paper tiger. They also actually think one game or one season somehow ties into the next.

    It’d be one thing if they’d been there, done that, but they haven’t. It’s a very strange phenomenon.

    They’re like the Jets in 2010. They don’t realize the fade will continue to come slowly, but surely, and it will be specifically tied to stuff like this. Bravado, blather and thinking the time is automatically is their own.

    Lastly, these teams like the Chiefs and BIlls who get into shootouts because they can, who tire out their D like Peyton Manning and Indy or even, go forbid I say it, the 2007-2012 Pats, who have QBs who don’t care about complimentary football, don’t win.

    This is why Cincy beat KC, too and would have beaten Buffy.

  11. And I bet Uncle Rico could throw that football over those mountains…..woulda, shoulda, coulda how about focusing on what actually happened. Your defense couldn’t defend for 13 seconds. From now to eternity the only thing people will talk about this game is the 13 seconds, you scoring 4 touchdowns will always be just a forgotten footnote.

  12. And the Chiefs would have two SB rings under the new rule instead of one. BUT it didn’t happen. Much like your 5th TD. Better stop worrying about the past and start worrying about getting back to playoffs. I doubt the Pats and Dolphins are going to rollover for you again next season.

    I think even the most critical eye can see a superstar in the making and breaking out with Davis…

  14. KC defense was trash last year and actually got worse.

    Their division reign will end this year. Book it!

  15. 13 seconds, this was a coaching issue, squib kick, the game isn’t over until it is over. If they played to the end, Bills wouldn’t need to whine about rule changes!

  16. The Chiefs were a pretty flawed team and were up and down all all season. If Big Ben had anything left in the tank, the Chiefs probably go one and done. So the Bills should have beaten the Chiefs but choked as usual.

  17. Yeah right Gabe!!!!!… We all know that final TD was going right to DIGGS!!!!! #LETS GO BILLS!!!!

    What does that say about our Pats defense that could not stop the Bills even once?

  19. Not a sb contender

    LOL!!!

    Much like Belichick and the Patriots.

  20. I always have to laugh at comments that equate fan optimism with team performance as if us Bills fans talking up our team will somehow equate to wins/losses for the actual team.

    And yet, your little team’s defense couldn’t even make the Bills punt — not one time – while getting manhandled in a humiliating playoff blowout.
    Have fun looking up at their team this season. Truth is, they have more talent, have done more in the interim to improve, and are infinitely closer to Super Bowl contender than yours.
    Your team can’t even beat the Dolphins, but go ahead and keep reliving past glories.

  22. I would rather see you score more during the regular season. You have a great game against KC where they are missing a starting corner and starting safety and you are talking like your a future hall of famer. Great game………..but do it more often before you become a diva please.

  23. with bracket coverage sliding to Diggs all game long, yeah I can see that…
    Definitely a talented player, but being a true number 1 has it challenges, none of which Davis faced in that particular game

  24. Sounds good to say and all but simply isn’t true. The reason people have called “13 seconds” arguably the best playoff game in NFL history was precisely due to the lack of defense and all of the excitement from scoring in the final 2 minutes. If Gabriel Davis doesn’t score those 4 TDs, this isn’t being talked about as one of the best playoff games of all-time, because it would have been over with Josh Allen failing to find the end zone, and that isn’t as fun. .

  25. This is exactly what I hate about the new rule and the basis for it. “If I had just ONE MORE chance, things would be different!” It’s a game – someone wins, someone loses. How many more chances do we need to delay that inevitable reality?

    The sentiment we should be hearing is, “if I had scored another TD in regulation, we wouldn’t have needed overtime”. Instead, the new rule will just encourage more of the “play not to lose” approach that makes games so boring.

    We don’t need more timid, conservative play that treads water in hopes the other side will make a mistake; we need more teams actively trying to win. That’s what makes sports fun.

  26. are infinitely closer to Super Bowl contender than yours.but go ahead and keep reliving past glories.

    Past glories are better than no glory at all. Bills, to date, have no glory at all.

    As a Pats’ fan this is hard to digest. But assuming both teams are at full strength, it is hard to argue your points.

    Now that Brady is gone, we will indeed see just how great a coach and GM BB is. Last year’s postseason game was ugly….I am hoping it was an aberration and not the norm. Time will tell.

  28. Last season, the Bills finished 11-6, the Patriots finished 10-7. That’s a one game gap. Plus the Patriots were under control of the division until the late bye with a rookie QB that derailed their momentum. I think the Patriots retake the division this year with Buffalo and Miami battling for a second place.

    Exactly.

    Any Pats fan thinking they were going to run their way through the playoffs is honestly thinking like a child.

    Buffalo’s greatest claim to fame since I was in high school was beating the Pats with a rookie qb coming out of a rebuild process.

    They don’t get the Pats are right on schedule while their window just slowly started to close.

    The Jets didn’t get this in 2010 either. They thought they arrived.

    lol
