SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah and current Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss scored his first touchdown as a professional athlete in the National Football League during a win over the New York Jets.

Moss and the Bills hosted the Jets in the team’s 2020 season opener on Sunday, September 13.

The Utes’ all-time leading rusher was on the receiving end on a pass from Bills quarterback Josh Allen for his first NFL score.

Allen hit Moss with a four-yard reception for a touchdown with 2:32 remaining in the first quarter.

The rookie running back’s catch capped off a six play, 82 yard drive by the Bills.

Moss’s score put Buffalo up 14-0 early.

The Bills ended up winning the contest 27-17.

Moss carried the ball nine times for 11 yards and recorded three receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in his first NFL game.

Up next for Moss and the 1-0 Bills will be a meeting with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, September 20 at 11 a.m. (MDT).
