Joseph Fauria Twerks After Scoring First Touchdown Of Season (Video)

Joseph Fauria made Nicki Minaj proud Sunday afternoon.

The Detroit Lions tight end caught his first touchdown pass of the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so he celebrated like no other player has ever celebrated before — by twerking.

Fauria, who missed a good chunk of the season after he injured his ankle trying to stop his adorable dog from urinating inside the house, put the Lions up 27-10 with his third-quarter score. Detroit went on to win 34-17.

This isn’t the first time Fauria has showed off his dance moves, either. The second-year player went full-‘N SYNC last year and busted out his best “Bye Bye Bye” moves.
