Estonian Margus Hunt made his US National Football League (NFL) debut over the weekend, when his team, the Cincinnati Bengals, beat the New England Patriots 13-6.

The Bengals claimed the win thanks to a strong game by the defensive line, who sacked the Patriots' Tom Brady four times, also ending his 52-game streak of throwing a touchdown pass.

Hunt, a defensive linesman, did not feature in the statistics, but was on the field during the lively fourth quarter.

The former junior world champion gold medalist in discus and shot put was picked by the Bengals in the second round of the NFL draft at the end of April, and is one of Estonia's highest-earning athletes.
