Damiere Byrd Hauls In 42-Yard Pass For First Touchdown With Patriots

This was Byrd's best play as a Patriot

Damiere Byrd is on the board.

The Patriots receiver hauled in a 42-yard pass Sunday against the Houston Texans for his first touchdown pass with New England. The play, also made possible by a great throw from quarterback Cam Newton, at the time narrowed the Texans’ lead to 21-16.

Take a look:

What a catch.

The big play gave Byrd three receptions for 89 yards and a score on the game. It also offered a rare glimpse of the speed and playmaking ability the Patriots expected when they signed Byrd during the offseason.
