It had been Prater’s first-ever touchdown pass and also the very first time he’s thrown a pass because the 2012 season. This one was not imperfect.
He’s the next kicker in Lions history to throw a touchdown pass first in the contemporary era. One alternative was Bill Dudley in 1947, but in addition, he played running back to Detroit.
Prater may be your next kicker to throw a touchdown pass this year, linking Chris Boswell. He’s also the third non-quarterback to complete a pass against Green Bay this season, linking Rams punter Johnny Hekker and New England wide receiver (and former Kent State quarterback) Julian Edelman.
