Jamaal Williams follows Barry Sanders’ Lions record with TD

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Former Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams faced his old team while wearing Honolulu blue and silver and etched his name into the Detroit Lions record book at Lambeau Field Sunday night.

With an 8-05 goal-line score in the third quarter, Williams tied Lions Hall of Famer Barry Sanders for his 16th rushing touchdown of the season for the most in Lions history. Sanders made a mark in 1991.

Williams’ touchdown was set up by a 43-yard finish from Lions quarterback Jared Goff to receiver Kalif Raymond.

It was Williams’ first rushing touchdown in four career games against the Packers. He spent the first four seasons of his career in Green Bay from 2017 to 2020.

“Jamaal is a threat anywhere on the pitch but on the goal line he’s just a beast and like him, [RB D’Andre] That Swift and the line have come together is really fun to see,” Sanders said in a statement to ESPN.”
