Wunderbar! Giants' Kuhn goes into history books on Sunday

Markus Kuhn, you'll always be the first.

The New York Giants defensive tackle scooped up a fumble and returned it 26 yards for a touchdown in his team's victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It was the first defensive touchdown for Big Blue this season.

However, it was also the first touchdown in NFL history scored by a German-born player. Who knew? Kuhn couldn't have been happier.

He got some good-natured ribbing from his teammates when he got back to the sidelines.

"They were like, 'They've even let the German score now,'" Kuhn said to the New York Post.
