Former Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City standout Jake Nordin caught his first pass in the NFL on Sunday for the Detroit Lions.

Nordin, a tight end from Northern Illinois University who was activated from the Lions' practice squad last week, caught a 12-yard pass from Drew Stanton with seven minutes left in the Lions' 31-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The pass came on third-and-two, giving the Lions a first down. It was his only reception of the game.
