Lions' Jamaal Williams goes 51 yards for his second touchdown against Seahawks

DETROIT -- With the Detroit Lions trailing the Seattle Seahawks 31-15 midway through the third quarter, running back Jamaal Williams gave the home crowd at Ford Field something to cheer about after bursting up through the middle for a 51-yard touchdown run with 6:30 left in the third quarter.

Williams slammed the football down and let out a load roar once he reached the end zone for the second time of the day.

With D'Andre Swift out, Williams was prepared for a larger role as the featured back entering the contest against Seattle. He has lived up to the task, as his two touchdowns brought the Lions within 31-23.

He joined Adrian Peterson (2020) as the only Lions players with multiple rushing touchdowns in back-to-back games over the last 10 seasons.

On the very next drive, tight end T.J. Hockenson turned a short pass from Jared Goff into an 81-yard gain late in the third quarter.

Hockenson slipped a couple of tackles from Seahawks defenders while sprinting up the sideline before being stopped right before the goal line.

That play set the Lions up to score at the beginning of the fourth quarter, as Goff would find Josh Reynolds for a 3 -yard touchdown catch. Hockenson also caught ensuing two-point conversion to bring the Lions within 38-31.
