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.
