ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Having spent much of his life playing rugby in England, Christian Wade is so new to American football the 28-year-old Buffalo Bills running back wasn’t sure what to do when he reached the end zone. Or where he was supposed to go after he scored.
“I was kind of looking around and didn’t know,” Wade said, recalling the confusion that set in after he was mobbed by teammates in the end zone following a 65-yard run in the fourth quarter of Buffalo’s 24-16 preseason-opening win over Indianapolis on Thursday night.
“Everyone was celebrating. And I was trying to celebrate but thinking about, ‘What am I supposed to do next?'”
