Welcome back to trivia time with The Falcoholic! Today’s question comes to us via Tom Markett from Twitter, so a big thanks to him for his submission. You can email us or direct message The Falcoholic on Twitter if you have killer trivia questions, so don’t forget to do that.

Here’s the question: Who scored the first touchdown for the Falcons in the Georgia Dome, a spectacular long catch?

The player in question was an underrated deep threat for the Falcons who was overshadowed by bigger names on the team, but remains a player worth remembering. He still owns the single season record for yards per reception for a player with 50 or more receptions, with a full three yards per catch more than the next closest player on the list.

Give us your best guess, if you would. Bonus points if you know the quarterback who threw the pass.
