Detroit Lions’ TE T.J. Hockenson breaks NFL record in debut

You may not agree with the Detroit Lions using the No. 8 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on tight end T.J. Hockenson, but I can guarantee you are going to have a hella good time watching him for the next decade or so.

On Sunday, Hockenson made his NFL debut against the Arizona Cardinals and to say it was memorable is an understatement.

After catching a 23-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, Hockenson set an NFL record for rookie tight ends in their first game with 124 receiving yards. The previous record was set all the way back in 1960 when 49ers TE Monty Stickles had 123 yards.

Congrats to T.J. Hockenson on this great achievement!
