Chris, this one's for you!

"Ziggy Ansah Scoring That first touchdown was probably one if the coolest things I have ever seen at a lions game"

Poor guy is a Lions fan. Must not be much action with his team. Good play, but can't possibly be the best play in the last few years. I hope he outclasses Suh and shows him how to be a good person and a good player at the same time.

It was Sanchez who threw the ball.

Wow great hands for a big man! Maybe he should play both sides of the ball!

West Point , UT

Tight End maybe, utenationalum? Nice hops and hands Ziggy. Good start to what will hopefully be a great career.

Anaheim, CA

Congrats Ziggy on a great start to your NFL career!

I bet that star picked off 4 passes for TDs. After all he is a 4 star player.
Nice work Ziggy. You make the Cougar Nation proud.

So, this is probably the first TD Ziggy has ever scored.
1st NFL Start

Not Bad!

Extremely happy for Ansah, that was an awesome way to start his career and I get the feeling he'll continue to be a fun player to watch.

Now back to more important things ... Go Utes!

Chris B: Bronco didn't pick up Ziggy. He walked to him.

Way to go Ziggy! thats how you start your career!

How is Mark Sanchez still in the NFL? let alone the starter?


re: UteNationAlum

Funny you'd say that. Imagine, with his speed and strength, putting him into "Fridge" situations inside the 5 as a blocking/carrying fullback...scary.

I did notice in the clip how he was the slowest off the line. Better work on that, Ezekiel.

I'm pumped for him to have earned this possibility, and think it's a cool story.

Syracuse, UT

I wonder how many stars Ziggy has now!

Iowa City, IA

That pick six made Ziggy a superstar in Detroit instantly!!

WOW! I'm not surprised at this pick 6 for Ansah, he is a beast!!! Go get em bro. He probably is the greatest Cougar to ever come out of Provo. besides Steve young


Guy is a BEAST!!! Always has been, always will be. I just wish he'd started football sooner... Then we could have had more than 2/3rds of a year with him!

Go get 'em Ziggy!!

Lehi, UT

I loved the sports writer's comment that Ziggy may be the Ansah to Detroit's prayers!


Nice play, fun to watch. As far as making him an instant star? Slow down, this is preseason. This play will be forgotten by 95% of NFL fans by September 8 when the Vikings come to Detroit. Hopefully he will start creating a name for himself then, this does little more than adding to the potential he has as a very gifted athlete.

Way to be a kill-joy;)

Man, he's good. We should have tried him at CB too. How did Detroit decide to put him at CB?
