San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis celebrates after scoring a touchdown against the Detroit Lions in the fourth quarter at Candlestick Park. The 49ers defeated the Lions 27-19.
SANTA CLARA, CA - Vernon Davis might get fewer style points these days for his touchdown celebrations - and he's perfectly fine with that.
The emotional San Francisco tight end learned from his blunder with the crossbar after scoring in a Week 1 win against the Packers at Lambeau Field. So, each time he scored in Sunday night's 27-19 victory against the Detroit Lions, Davis opted to shoot jump shots over the bar.
Complete with a perfect, pretty follow-through.
Davis said ahead of time that he might think twice about dunking the football over the goal post after all the razzing he took the previous week from teammates.
Especially from Randy Moss and Michael Crabtree. He even heard about it on the team plane.
