Watch: Michael Thomas does the Joe Horn phone celebration
Michael Thomas did his best Joe Horn impression after scoring a huge touchdown in the New Orleans Saints’ win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Thomas caught a 72-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees to make it 44-35 late in the fourth quarter. After scoring, he lifted up the pad protecting the goal post and located a cell phone. He pretended to dial a call, just like Horn did with the Saints 15 years ago.
