Rob Gronkowski left the field in the third quarter of Sunday’s game with the Saints after suffering a groin injury. The All-Pro tight end landed awkwardly after being tackled at the end of a 21-yard reception and walked gingerly off the field. He was later taken to the sideline injury tent for evaluation.
He did not return to the game, but afterward he said he was fine:
He didn’t just honor Moss with his dance. Diggs is also wearing some dope custom cleats that depict Moss mooning Green Bay Packers fans at the 2005 NFC Wild Card game.
The touchdown gave the Vikings a 10-3 lead over the Saints. But Diggs wasn’t done. If you have him on your fantasy team, congratulations, because he got in the end zone again. This time, he celebrated by trying to punt the ball right out of the stadium.
Unfortunately for Diggs, his second celebration cost him a Phil Dawson Youth Jersey cool $6,076. There are more relaxed celebration rules this year, but punting a ball to the moon still falls in the no-no category.
Believe it or not, only two players in Vikings history have scored two touchdowns in a season opener. It’s Diggs, and guess who else?
Two teams with big questions behind center meet at 8:30 p.m. ET Prince Amukamara Youth Jersey Thursday in Cincinnati (TV: NFL Network, NBC in Houston and Cincinnati markets) with hopes of turning around a gruesome start to their 2017 seasons. The Bengals and Texans each got underwhelming performances from their quarterbacks Sunday, and somehow the worst showing wasn’t from a career backup or rookie passer, but veteran Pro Bowler Andy Dalton.
