A rare type of touchdown: A.J. Brown recovers onside kick, takes it to the house in Titans' win
Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has been having an impressive 2020 season. But on Sunday, the former Ole Miss standout did something incredible, even by his high standards.
During the fourth quarter of Tennessee’s 45-26 road win over the Indianapolis Colts, Brown scored his second touchdown of the afternoon. But unlike his first trip to the end zone, this wasn’t a receiving score. It was an onside-kick recovery that Brown took 42 yards to the house.
Playing on the hands team, Brown never stopped moving on the play, as he rushed toward the ball, caught it while in motion and outran several Indianapolis defenders on his way to a game-sealing touchdown. It was quite the impressive play for the former Rebel:
Brown also had four receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown, which came on a 69-yard grab in the first quarter.
In his second year in the NFL, Brown has carried over the success from his rookie season. He has 40 receptions for 638 yards and eight touchdowns during the Titans’ 8-3 start.
Brown and the Titans will look to continue their successful season next Sunday when they host the Cleveland Browns.
