The first touchdown in Chase Edmonds’ NFL career is one he will never forget.

The rookie running back scored on a 6-yard run late in the first half against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, giving the Arizona Cardinals their first touchdown of the game.

The fourth-round pick from Fordham hasn’t played a huge role in the Cardinals’ offense this season behind David Johnson, but made his opportunity count.

It looked like Edmonds scored on the play before the touchdown — the run was ruled a score on the field — but was overturned on replay.

Edmonds didn’t do the famous Lambeau Leap, but scoring your first NFL touchdown at such a historic venue is quite the accomplishment.

Edmonds wasn’t done there.

He scored his second touchdown of the game on a 8-yard rush with 1:54 left in the third quarter as part of a 10-0 quarter for the Cardinals.

For the game, Edmonds had 53 yards on five carries.
