It had been 12,327 days since a Harvard graduate caught a touchdown pass in an NFL regular season game.

On Sunday, Baltimore Ravens fullback Kyle Juszczyk ’13 became the most recent player to accomplish the feat, the school’s first player to do since former Crimson punter and wide receiver Pat McInally ’75 scored a touchdown for the Cincinnati Bengals on December 21, 1980.

Juszczyk scored the first touchdown of his NFL career on his first NFL reception, a nine-yard pass from quarterback Joe Flacco with 7:24 left in the second quarter. The catch put the Ravens ahead of the host Cleveland Browns, 10-7, in a game that Baltimore would ultimately win 23-21.
