Lions Offensive Lineman, Taylor Decker Enters Record Books as a Touchdown Machine
Taylor Decker is a great offensive lineman for the Detroit Lions, but he'll go down as a touchdown machine in the record books.
Taylor Decker did something on Sunday in the Lions blowout loss to the Seahawks, that no other Lions lineman has ever done. Decker became the only Detroit Lions offensive lineman ever with multiple receiving touchdowns.
Decker locked his place in the history books on Sunday with a 7-yard touchdown reception. This is the second receiving touchdown of his career, which puts him in a league of his own.
Decker is one of two active offensive linemen in the NFL with two receiving touchdowns and is second all-time. There are only a handful of OL in NFL history with two receiving touchdowns and only three players with more than two.
The record right now is four offensive touchdowns, and according to statmuse, there are only three players that have reached that mark. Decker has only played 79 games so far, so he could easily work his way up to the top of that list before his career is over.
Obviously, I'm being a little dramatic about Decker being a prolific receiver, but there is one Detroit Lions receiver that really is turning heads this season.
Amon-Ra St. Brown Is One Of The Detroit Lions Brightest Stars This Season.
With the poor showing that the Lions have had this season, it's important to find the bright spots. St. Brown has made that job much easier by putting up numbers that rival some of the best Lions receivers ever.
If you have not been paying very close attention to the Lions recently, I don't blame you.
It's been tough to watch.
The only downside to that is that you've been missing a really impressive rookie season by Lions receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown. He is quietly putting together a season that could land him in the Detroit Lions record books.
St. Brown is re-writing the Lions history books, but he is also making NFL history as well.
St. Brown has the second-most receiving yards by a Lions rookie and is less than 100 yards away from becoming the all-time leader.
Keep in mind that St. Brown is doing all of this with some less than stellar quarterback play. The Lions have one more game left for St Brown to get the record, so if you are looking for a reason to watch, you're welcome.
