Former Gopher Tyler Johnson hauls in first career TD catch in Tampa Bay's win over Green Bay
Sunday was a big day for former Minnesota wide receiver Tyler Johnson, who reached the end zone for the first time in his NFL career.
Johnson caught his first career touchdown pass on Sunday, hauling in a 7-yard reception in the 2nd quarter to give Tampa Bay a 21-10 advantage over Green Bay. It was his lone catch in the afternoon, but it helped the Buccaneers post a 38-10 victory over the Packers.
Johnson hauled in the pass from quarterback Tom Brady late in the 2nd quarter. Below is the clip:

This marks the second game that Johnson has made a contribution to the Tampa Bay offense. Last week, the former Gopher totaled 4 receptions for 61 yards, but did not reach the end zone in last week’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Johnson has been able to work his way onto the field with the Bucs early in his NFL career. Now, he’s making the most of the opportunity.
