Detroit (AP) – Amon-Ra St. Brown scored the third touchdown in the second game of the season in the NFL and extended his personal winning streak when his Detroit Lions won.
The 22-year-old professional footballer with a German mother and American father has now had eight touchdowns in the past six games across the seasons. At his age, only two other players in NFL history have done that before him, according to the Lions: Randy Moss and Rob Gronkowski. In the 36-27 win over the Washington Commanders, St. Brown caught nine passes for 116 total yards and carried the ball for a total of 68 yards.
NFL superstar Tom Brady, on the other hand, experienced a frustrating second game of the season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite the 20-10 win against the New Orleans Saints. The most successful quarterback in history found hardly any reasonable passing stations well into the last quarter, yelled at his teammates and threw tablets around.
Brady comment sparks shoving
Emotions between the rival teams also prompted a Brady comment-induced shove among many players, with Bucaneers’ Mike Evans and Saints pro Marshon Lattimore being sent off in the last quarter. Brady then threw a touchdown pass and was happy about an intercepted pass from his defense, which was carried to the Saints’ end zone.
The Jacksonville Jaguars got their first win of the season in a 24-0 win against the Indianapolis Colts, and the New England Patriots now have a win of the season and defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 17:14.
The notoriously unsuccessful New York Jets turned their game against the Cleveland Browns in the last two minutes and turned a 17:30 into a 31:30 and took the win. The Miami Dolphins also caught up a big deficit: In the 42:38 against the Baltimore Ravens they were still 21 points behind in the last quarter. Tua Tagovailoa made an outstanding six touchdown passes for the Dolphins.
