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.
