WATCH: Braxton Miller jukes out defender for first NFL touchdown
It didn’t happen on U.S. soil, but Braxton Miller’s first NFL touchdown still counts.
The former Ohio State quarterback/H-back had been held out of the end zone in the first nine games of his NFL career until Monday night in Mexico. And as Miller often did in Columbus, he shined on the biggest stage.
Miller put a nasty double move on David Amerson and got into the end zone for the score.

The touchdown was part of a career-high 25 yards receiving on five catches for the former third-round pick.
Miller might not be getting the volume yet, but the former Buckeye appears to be making significant strides as a route-runner.
His former teammates noticed:
