The Washington Redskins selected former Arkansas TE Jeremy Sprinkle in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and on Sunday, that move paid off.
That’s because Sprinkle scored his first professional touchdown on a wide open end-zone route in the fourth quarter of an eventual loss to the hot New Orleans Saints.
As you can see below, there was no one near Sprinkle on this play, as the Saints’ defense totally blew the coverage:

Naturally, after scoring, Sprinkle pretended to spread sprinkles for his celebration:

That score put the Redskins ahead 31-16, but Washington couldn’t hold on, as the Saints came charging back in the final five minutes of the game to earn a victory.
However, it was a good day for Sprinkle, and he’ll try to do it all again next weekend.
