If you don't know the name Gabriel Davis, you should now.

The Buffalo Bills wide receiver made NFL history on Sunday, becoming the first player to have four receiving touchdowns in one playoff game.

The record came in a losing effort, as Buffalo fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 42-36 in an epic overtime thriller in the divisional round.

QB Josh Allen found Davis twice in the final two minutes to give the Bills the lead each time. Down 26-21, Allen hit his wide receiver on a fourth-and-13 for a 27-yard touchdown, putting the Bills ahead.

After Patrick Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill for a 64-yard touchdown to retake the lead, Allen and the Bills marched down the field, capping off the drive with another Davis touchdown to pull the Bills ahead 36-33 with 17 seconds left.

However, the Chiefs would tie the game as regulation expired with a field goal and then win in overtime on the first possession.

The UCF product ended the day with an impressive eight catches for 201 yards. Davis is now just one of nine NFL players to record at least 200 receiving yards in a single NFL playoff game.

To put in perspective how out of the blue Davis' performance was, he ended the regular season with just 549 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his second year with the Bills.

While the epic game resulted in Davis and Co. heading back to Buffalo with their Super Bowl aspirations over, Davis will forever to be remembered as a postseason legend for his performance.
