Found October 13, 2013 on Diehardsport:
PLAYERS: Joseph Fauria
TEAMS: Detroit Lions

After Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden recorded back-to-back pass interference penalties, the Detroit Lions had the ball on the Browns goal line.  Lions quarterback Matt Stafford threw one up for grabs for tight end Joseph Fauria, who used his size and athleticism to make the easy catch.  Fauria then got up and did another hilarious touchdown dance, thought I’m not sure where he got it from.  Fauria now has five catches for three touchdowns on the season.
