SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and current Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams ran more than half the length of the field for his second score against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Lions hosted the Seahawks at Ford Field on Sunday, October 2.

With 6:30 remaining in the third quarter, Williams broke loose, gave a stiff arm, and took the pigskin 51 yards to the house.

The touchdown run cut Seattle’s lead to 31-23.

After the sprinting score, Williams had 16 carries for 104 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one catch for one yard.

William’s first touchdown came as time expired at the end of the first half on a one-yard burst up the middle.

His first score was the former BYU star’s fifth rushing touchdown of the season, which surpassed his previous single-season high of rushing scores. Williams previously scored four rushing touchdowns in 2017 as a rookie for the Green Bay Packers and in 2021, his first season with the Lions.

The running back is in his sixth NFL season and second with the Lions. Williams entered the Week 4 game with 168 yards and four touchdowns on 43 rushes.

Prior to his time in the NFL, Williams was a star running back at BYU from 2012-16. During his college career, he ran for 3,901 yards and 35 touchdowns.

Detroit’s game against Seattle is televised on FOX.
