Joique Bell On First Career Touchdown: 'Like A Dream Come True'

Down, 3-0, early in the second quarter, the Detroit Lions handed the ball to Joique Bell on the 1-yard line, and he punched it to give the Lions a 7-0 lead. It was the first touchdown of Bell's career.

Joique Bell entered the NFL in 2010 out of Wayne State as an undrafted free agent signed by the Buffalo Bills. Since then, he has also been signed by the Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints, but it was not until Sunday's game as a member of the Detroit Lions that he got his first regular season carry. He made it count.

As written by Justin Rogers of MLive.com, Bell took his first NFL carry, darted in for a touchdown, got up running and jumped into the crowd behind the Lions endzone. It was the realization of a dream.

"It was an amazing feeling. Growing up and watching guys jump into the crowd, I always told myself when I get my first regular season NFL touchdown, I'm jumping into the crowd. It was like a dream come true."

Bell's NFL stat line currently stands at one carry for one yard and one touchdown.
