NFL Twitter explodes after Lance's 76-yard TD pass to Gray originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
San Francisco trailed 7-3 with 5:44 remaining in the first quarter. On third-and-9, Lance fired deep for rookie wide receiver Danny Gray, who housed it for a 76-yard touchdown reception.
And as you can imagine, Twitter went wild.

Trey Lance connects with Danny Gray on a deep bomb down the left sideline for a 76 yard touchdown
Thatâs it, Iâve seen enough. Get the gold jacket ready, this young man is on his way to Canton
Trey Lance released that touchdown from the left hash of the SF 16 with pressure bumping his side. Danny Gray caught the pass down the left sideline at the GB 42.
I don't know the last time I've seen a 49ers QB deliver such a good pass 44 yards downfield along the sideline.

Really nice job by Lance getting that one out fairly quick in a collapsing pocket. Perfectly placed after he put a lil too much mustard on some early attempts, too.

It's just the preseason, but a bomb from Lance in his first action of the summer certainly is a sight to behold.
With the 22-year-old set to take over as the starter under center this season, the 49ers are hoping for many more long touchdown passes to come.
