Ryan Fitzpatrick, Cameron Brate Team Up For NFL’s First-Ever Harvard-To-Harvard TD

-

Ryan Fitzpatrick and Cameron Brate teamed up for the smartest touchdown in NFL history during Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Arizona Cardinals.

In the fourth quarter, Fitzpatrick, who was filling in for an injured Jameis Winston, found his tight end for a ten-yard touchdown pass. The scoring play capped off a six-play, 63-yard drive which begin the Buccaneers’ attempt at an epic comeback, which ultimately fell short.

But while the touchdown did not lead to victory for the Buccaneers, it will go down in league history.

As it turns out, Fitzpatrick to Brate was the first-ever Harvard-to-Harvard touchdown the NFL has ever seen. It’s tough to see a quarterback-receiver pairing topping the IQ of this scoring connection.

Fitzpatrick played for Harvard in 2003 and 2004, while Brate played nearly a decade later from 2011-13.

Check out the touchdown below:

Fitzpatrick finished the game with 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Brate, meanwhile, hauled in six catches for 76 yards and a score.

Tampa Bay will look to rebound on the road next weekend against the Buffalo Bills.
