Watch Sammy Watkins celebrate too early — and get caught from behind
Sammy Watkins made a rookie mistake on Sunday.
The all-world Bills wide receiver started to showboat before scoring a touchdown against the Jets.
He was breaking away from the Jets defense and would have scored, but he looked up at the scoreboard, slowed down and celebrated … then got tackled.
Check it out below. Also, Twitter let him have it:
Dear Sammy Watkins, objects in the rear view mirror are closer than they appear.
