He had 10.9 yards of separation, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. That’s the most passing touchdowns the Minnesota Vikings have allowed this season and the second-most passing touchdowns the Lions have allowed this season.
Williams was targeted just once in eight snaps on his pro debut in last week’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
