Congratulations are in order for former Wisconsin Badgers star RB Melvin Gordon. He scored his first career NFL touchdown on Sunday, scoring a short TD run against the Kansas City Chiefs. To make the score even more special, Badgers teammate Derek Watt helped.

As a rookie, Gordon rushed for 641 yards and averaged 3.5 per attempt — but he didn’t find the end zone.
He did just that in Week 1 in 2016 — and then scored another touchdown a little later. That gave him two touchdowns in only seven touches this young season.
