Watch Golden Tate Drop ‘The People’s Elbow’ After Amazing TD Vs. Saints

1,945

Do you smell what Golden Tate is cooking?

The Detroit Lions wide receiver pulled off the first highlight-reel play of Sunday’s slate, catching a short pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford and proceeding to roast the New Orleans Saints’ defense for a 45-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

But never mind the broken tackles, sideline tight-roping and a full flip into the end zone — the best part of Tate’s touchdown came after he hit paydirt.

The Lions wideout did his best impersonation of The Rock, giving the football a mean “People’s Elbow.”

That’s an “A” for creativity and execution, Golden.

UPDATE (2:45 p.m. ET): The Rock approves.
