Stevie Johnson will not be blaming God today. After making this grab, he will be thanking all of the gods above.
In fact, the whole team team is probably psyched right now. The season started on a great note for the Bills.
First, they forced a turnover on the Chiefs' initial play at Arrowhead Stadium.
Then they converted the ensuing drive for a touchdown. They led 20-7 at the half and now lead 27-7.
But if the AFC East team holds on for the win, most folks will be talking about the late first quarter hook up between Ryan Fitzpatrick and his colorful receiver, mostly known league wide for a tweet last season in which he blamed God for allowing him to drop a game-winning touchdown grab in the end zone.
Today, however, Fitzpatrick's pass to Johnson was completed for a 27-yard touchdown catch.
And so far this season, everything seems to be going right for the Bills.
According to Buffalonews.com
The Bills caught a huge break in the second quarter when Chiefs tight end Leonard Pope couldn’t hang on to a 19-yard pass that was originally ruled a touchdown. It was determined during a replay review that Pope did not maintain possession. Spencer Johnson sacked Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel on the next play for a 12-yard loss. That pushed the Chiefs to the Buffalo 31, and Ryan Succop’s 49-yard field goal was no good.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has actually tossed three touchdowns so far—two to Scott Chandler and then the acrobatic grab by Johnson, who climbed the proverbial latter to get it.
