New York Giants tight end, former Ole Miss standout Evan Engram catches first career NFL touchdown from Eli Manning

Evan Engram caught the first of what is likely to be many touchdown passes from Eli Manning on Monday.

Ole Miss’ former All-American tight end caught his first career NFL touchdown in the second quarter of the New York Giants’ game against the Detroit Lions. Lining up at H-back, Engram slithered through the Lions’ defense on a play-action pass and made a leaping catch in the end zone for the Giants’ first score.

Engram, the Giants’ first-round pick this year, was a three-year starter and two-time captain at Ole Miss. He left as the school’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches by a tight end.
