Saints receiver Joe Morgan's deep catch was just the beginning of his adventure to the end zone.
In the second quarter, Morgan caught an underthrown ball from Drew Brees, and that's when the acrobatics began.
Morgan first eluded Tampa Bay safety Mark Barron, ducking under Barron's tackle and somehow not letting his knee hit the ground. Then cornerback Eric Wright was bearing down fast, so he did what would come naturally to any NFL receiver or WWE wrestler. He went with a tried and true back body drop on Wright that would have made Shawn Michaels proud, flipping Wright over his head to break free. And Morgan still wasn't done.
He turned to get into the end zone and had cornerback E.J. Biggers bearing down on him, but he managed to take the impact of the blow and stretch to get into the end zone for a 48-yard touchdown catch.
That was the rookie's second career touchdown, and he made it a memorable one.
