Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson mocks Eagles fans after touchdown
The Philadelphia Eagles started the Week 18 primetime contest by marching right through the Dallas Cowboys defense. Thankfully, the Cowboys had a response.
For the first time in seven games, Dallas scored on its opening drive thanks to some great passes by quarterback Dak Prescott. Even though Dallas, unlike Philadelphia, chose to play most of their starters, they were without star WR Michael Gallup.
Luckily for the Cowboys, Cedrick Wilson was yet again there to step up. His 14-yard touchdown catch allowed Dallas to tie the game at 7-7.
Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson mocks Eagles fans by doing the Eagles flap after scoring a touchdown
What the video above, doesn’t show, is Wilson’s touchdown celebration. After the score, he stood in the endzone, looked up at the crowd, and did the “Fly Eagles Fly” flap. It was subtle, but he still did it.
If you can recall, when Terrell Owens was on the Eagles, he did the wing flap as a celebration. Then, when he was with the Dallas, he used the move to mock fans, just as Wilson did.
Mike McCarthy and the rest of the team should consider themselves lucky that Wilson isn’t playing like much of a backup at all. This is also a great opportunity for Wilson and Prescott to get used to playing together before the playoffs.
The cameras barely caught the move, but the Cowboys’ official Twitter account caught a great pic.
Fly Wilson Fly.
