Marquez Callaway snags first career NFL TD on wild pass from Jameis Winston
Marquez Callaway’s first touchdown in the NFL wasn’t pretty. In fact, it was ugly, but he’ll take it.
The former Tennessee receiver fell halfway through his route, regained his feet, ran to the back of the endzone and caught a prayer of a pass from quarterback Jameis Winston. That connection helped the New Orleans Saints extend their lead over the New England Patriots on Sunday.
Here is the touchdown catch. Beware, it’s hard to watch.
He finished with 4 catches for 41 yards, on 5 targets to lead the Saints. He came into Sunday with 3 catches for 22 yards on 6 targets this season.
Callaway played four seasons at Tennessee. He caught 92 passes for 1,646 yards ad 13 touchdowns during his career.
