After Detroit took a 27-20 lead on Nate Burleson’s 3-yard touchdown pass and two-point coversion, Darius Reynaud fielded the ensuing kickoff five yards deep and returned it a franchise-record 105 yards for a touchdown, tying the game at 27 with 6:41 remaining at LP Field.
Reynaud’s touchdown was set up by a crushing block by rookie tight end Taylor Thompson.
In addition to being his first career touchdown, it was the longest play in franchise history. Previously, the longest kickoff return and the longest play was a 104-yard kickoff return by Ken Hall against the New York Titans on Oct. 23, 1960.
