Jimmy Graham did some serious damage at the Georgia Dome on Thursday Night Football.
The New Oreleans Saints star tight end not only caught five receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown — he forced a delay of game after his pateneted slam dunk over the goal post to celebrate a score.

It forced a small delay as workers brought out ladders to level the goal post. Graham ended with a game-high 100 receiving yards on five receptions, tying an NFL record for most 100-yard games in a season at the position set by Atlanta’s Tony Gonzalez.”"
