Though Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan has been playing in the league since 2017, Monday night’s game was his proper official launch in the world of football.
Tonyan caught 3 touchdowns and 6 passes for 98 yards in one 30-16 victory over Atlanta, thus enjoying major end zone attention from quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the 4th straight win of the Packers to kick start this year. He went on to become the only undrafted player of the Packers in common draft times to have 3-plus receiving touchdown in a single game. Tonyan thus exceeded in his overall career touchdown in a single night.
The Packers have reached a new height without much help from their major receivers, who have not been available to plat for this game since the first week. Rodgers has turned to the players such as Tonyan as well as the several running backs who are available to fill in the void.
The Monday night’s game was not the first interaction of Tonyan with end zone. As a matter of fact, Tonyan scored one touchdown back during pre-pandemic 2018’s Before Times, a campaign where he played in sixteen games as well as caught 4 passes for 77 yards. Tonyan did it again last year, hauling in ten receptions for 100 yards as well as 1 touchdown.
