WATCH: Michael Thomas pays homage to vintage Joe Horn celebration following game-sealing TD
This is definitely one way to finish a game!
Sunday’s NFL showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints turned out to be a great one. In a game that came down to the wire, former Ohio State WR Michael Thomas provided the highlight of the night.
On a crucial third-down play, Thomas blew past his defender and was left wide open. Drew Brees hit him in stride with a beautiful deep ball that Thomas took all the way for a huge score, effectively sealing a win for the Saints.
The touchdown was just the tip of the iceberg as Thomas would provide an epic celebration afterward. After the score, Thomas ran to the goalpost and lifted the cover to reveal a cell phone. It was a perfect throwback to the celebration of former Saints WR Joe Horn. (You can checkout his original celebration here.)
