Golden Tate is having himself a great start to Sunday’s game between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints.
In the first quarter, Tate hauled in a pass from Matthew Stafford before giving an incredible individual effort to break through the hands of would-be tacklers before flipping his way into the endzone for a 45-yard touchdown.
But while the touchdown was impressive, it was his special flair during the celebration that pushed things over the top.
First, here is the highlight reel touchdown and flip into the endzone:

Pretty great, right?
Well, Tate upstaged himself a few seconds later by celebrating with “The People’s Elbow,” an homage to WWE Superstar The Rock. Who knows, maybe this will land Tate a role on an upcoming episode of the HBO hit show Ballers, featuring Dwayne Johnson.

We all need to be thankful that the NFL relaxed its celebration rules this season.
Tate has two catches for 51 yards and a score at the end of the first quarter, but the Lions trail the Saints, 17-7.
