Sam LaPorta makes 45-yard grab for first career NFL touchdown in Falcons-Lions game


The terrific start to Sam LaPorta’s NFL career continued in Week 3 as the Detroit Lions tight end caught his first touchdown pass as a pro.

Of course, he secured the catch and strolled right in for six to break a 3-3 tie in the NFC matchup.
