SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and current New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson threw a strike for a touchdown pass against the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills hosted the Jets on Sunday, January 9.

With 3:51 left in the first half, Wilson zipped a ball to Keelan Cole, who took it the rest of the way to the end zone for a 40-yard touchdown.

The Wilson-Cole connection cut Buffalo’s lead to 10-7.

The toss capped a four-play, 45-yard drive that took only 1:31.

After the throw, Wilson was 5/10 passing for 75 yards and one touchdown. He added one carry for four yards with his legs.
