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.

Wilson entered the game having thrown for 2,247 yards, eight touchdowns, and 11 interceptions this season.

New York’s game against Buffalo is televised on CBS.
