The Buffalo Bills may have lost their second game of the season to their divisional rivals the New York Jets on Thursday night, but they'll take at least one spectacular moment away from the game which they can brag about.

With just under five and a half minutes left in the first quarter on the Bills' first drive of the night, quarterback Tyrod Taylor found wide receiver Marquise Goodwin on the right-hand side of the field to complete what would end up being an 84-yard touchdown and the longest play of the game.

As you can see in the video further down in this article, the fascinating thing about this play is that the 25-year-old bolted past one of the best defensive backs in the league for the score, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.

This was a clear demonstration of the Olympian's pace, and he came close to representing Team USA at this summer's Olympics in Rio, but he failed to advance from the final stages of qualification.

The touchdown gave the Bills a 7-3 lead, but they would end up losing to their divisional rivals by a scoreline of 37-31 in what ended up being a highly contested game.

End of Revis Island?

This is the second week in a row which Revis has been beaten on a big play. The cornerback is still known to be one of the best in the league, but quarterbacks may be more confident in targeting the receiver he is covering after recent events.

Last week, the 31-year-old was beaten by Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver AJ Green on a 54-yard touchdown play, and by the end of the game, the wideout had 180 yards on 12 catches.

It's one thing to lose out on one of the best receivers in the league in Green, but to lose against someone like Goodwin who isn't even a starter for the Bills is a little bit concerning. The legendary cornerback could be losing his edge.
