“Even having E (Emmanuel Sanders) here was a big jump for me, because he taught me something a couple weeks ago that kind of changed my game,” Davis said. “And I thank him a lot for that. It was just one little thing that he taught me that he likes to do, that I added to my game, and definitely gotten way more successful with it.”
Davis won’t get too specific: He doesn’t want to let other teams in on the tweak. But it came from Sanders’ observations of the young receiver’s tendencies.
“Yeah, it’s a secret,” Davis said. “It’s a secret – I can’t tell nobody. But he definitely helped me figure out the things I need to do with the type of play style I have, and it helped me out a lot.”
Quarterback Josh Allen says Davis has grown the most in his mental approach to the game, and it shows up on the field. He sees the patience, as well, and he hopes Davis won’t have to always be waiting.
When it comes to the Bills’ run game, he loves a big play, of course, but Brown finds the most delight in controlling the game.
“When he’s in the game, he’s going in the there and digging out a linebacker, or a safety,” Allen said Wednesday. “He’s making some spectacular catches along the sidelines, catching touchdowns for us. He’s able to do a lot of different things for us. So again, just the patience, and that virtue of playing a certain role, it’s gonna help him. It’s gonna pay dividends in the long run, and we’re gonna need him more going forward.”
