It had been Prater’s touchdown pass and also the first time he’s thrown a pass because the 2012 season. This you was faulty.
He’s the next kicker in Lions history to throw a touchdown pass and first in the modern era. One other was Bill Dudley at 1947, but he also played back to Detroit.
Prater may be the next kicker to throw a touchdown pass this year, joining Chris Boswell. He’s also the third non-quarterback to finish a pass against Green Bay this season, joining Rams punter Johnny Hekker along with New England wide receiver (and former Kent State quarterback) Julian Edelman.
