DETROIT – Detroit Lions left tackle Taylor Decker caught a touchdown pass on Sunday against the Rams -- his first ever touchdown.
After scoring, Decker threw the ball into the stands. After the game, Decker tweeted that he would love to have the ball back:
To whoever caught/has the ball I threw into the stands. I’ve played football since first grade, and that was my first ever touchdown. I’d love to have that ball, and would be more than happy to hook you up if you’d be willing. #defendtheden #bigmantouchdown— Taylor Decker (@__taylordecker) December 3, 2018
