WATCH: Former Nebraska FB Andy Janovich scored a touchdown on his first NFL carry
Andy Janovich’s first NFL carry was certainly a memorable one.
Janovich, a rookie fullback for the Denver Broncos, score the defending Super Bowl champions’ first touchdown of the season in the second quarter Thursday night. A sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Janovich took the handoff from former Northwestern quarterback Trevor Siemian and burst through a large hole in the middle of the field for a 28-yard touchdown run.
First carry? Touchdown.
Just give it to the fullback.
Just give it to @AndyJanovich.

There were 175 players taken before Janovich in the draft, but he is first player from his class to score a touchdown in the NFL. He had 265 rushing yards and three touchdowns last season for the Cornhuskers.
