Patriots QB Bailey Zappe made history at Lambeau Field

New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe  made history in his debut at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

He became the first visiting player to make his pro debut at the hallowed venue and throw a touchdown pass in the same game. This is especially significant given that Lambeau is one of the oldest stadiums in pro sports. It first opened in 1957.

Zappe connected with wideout DeVante Parker for the score. The touchdown pass gave New England a 17-14 lead, following the extra point. The pass continued the scoring barrage by both teams, as the Patriots hung in throughout the course of the game.  They would go on to lose 27-24 in overtime.

Despite the loss, Zappe accomplished an achievement that he can certainly hang his hat on.
