Christian Wade has made an emphatic start to his NFL career with an audacious 70-metre touchdown.
The NFL’s official Twitter account posted the match highlight, which shows Wade doubtlessly winning over countless fans with his first touch of the football.
In his first football game ever. On his first NFL touch.

The former England international showed off his trademark pace, receiving the ball on his own 30-yard line then skipping through the defence to net his team the 6-pointer.
The commentators were in raptures with Christian Wade’s score – but perhaps not as much as the Buffalo fans.
“They are going crazy for their friend from England,” said one commentator.
Many Twitter users commented on Wade’s ‘unusual’ ball-carrying style – obviously something he’s retained from his rugby days.
The Bills went on to win the pre-season match 24-16.
