Saints vs. Bucs: Joseph Morgan flips Eric Wright onto his face, scores touchdown

Saints receiver Joseph Morgan isn't a household name, but Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright won't be forgetting who he is any time soon.

Saints second-year receiver Joseph Morgan has only caught three passes this season, but he has had two of them go for touchdowns in New Orleans' explosive offense.

But more importantly, Morgan has one catch this year where he flipped a defender up, over his head, and onto his face.

See for yourself:


What better way to highlight a 48-yard touchdown catch than by pulling a WWE-style wrestling move in the middle of it?

In case you're wondering, that's Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright who ends up with a face full of turf.

Morgan, a little-known receiver from Walsh University in his sophomore year in the NFL, might be not ever end up in Canton (although Walsh is just a few minutes away from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in North Canton), but this play might warrant special consideration for placement in the LOL hall of fame. If such a thing exists, of course.

The Saints lead the Buccaneers, 28-21, in the third quarter.
