The Lions' 31-17 win over the Browns on Sunday turned into a dance party for tight end Joseph Fauria. The undrafted free agent out of UCLA pulled down three catches, all of them for touchdowns. But it was the way he celebrated those scores that turned heads around the nation. His one-yard grab from Matthew Stafford in the first quarter was topped off by this strange move: That looked like a mix of Beyonce from her "Single Ladies" video mixed with a seizure. Fauria got a double-dip of touchdowns in the fourth quarter. After pulling down a 23-yard score, he went for the standard slam dunk. Then came the coup de gras. With just more than two minutes left in the game, Fauria finished his day with a 10-yard touchdown. That's when he went old school and pulled out the Cabbage Patch: In case you're counting at home, Fauria now has seven receptions in 2013. And five touchdowns.

But...

Fauria a hit with end zone dances

DeSean Jackson, Joseph Fauria, and Mike Tolbert Audition for Dancing With the Stars After Scoring

Personally I do not see the appeal behind Dancing With the Stars; tried watching it once and I just couldn't see any good reason that the program was on television. A staple of the show seems to be having a current or former NFL personality on the program. Some of them have won, others have done well, and than there is Keyshawn Johnson (I don't watch; I might follow it.....

Week 6 Whiparound

Seven catches this season, five touchdowns for Joseph Fauria.   We’ve seen Brandon Pettigrew make the least of his considerable size and athleticism, but if Fauria can continue to be a red zone threat opposite Calvin Johnson then we’ll be seeing plenty more big fantasy days from Matt Stafford and the rest of the Lions offense.
