Lions Rookie Ameer Abdullah Gets a TD on His First Run Ever (Video)
Welcome to the NFL, Ameer Abdullah! The Lions rookie made his presence known on the very first run of his NFL career, breaking off a rush for 24 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter against the San Diego Chargers.
The play featured some smart cuts up front, followed by some very nice open field work to blow past the Chargers safety Eric Weddle.
Here’s the impressive play:
Not bad, eh?
Unfortunately for Ameer Abdullah, his touchdown and seven carries for 50 yards on the day weren’t enough to put the Lions past San Diego, and they fell 33-28 in their season opener.
Not only was Abdullah the team’s leading rusher, but he was also their second-leading receiver, pulling in 44 yards on five catches, one of which was for 36 yards.
Seems like Abdullah is comfortable making the big plays.
