Frank Gore staked the San Francisco 49ers to a late lead on an untouched sprint to the end zone. The interior runs were working all day for the 'Niners, so the call wasn't exactly a surprise.
He broke through the middle of the line and raced the final nine yards to the lead. San Francisco had failed to score on its previous two trips into the Atlanta Falcons territory, making this touchdown imperative.
But Gore busted out a surprise for the Falcons fans after bursting their bubble.
You can see Gore start to break out the old "Dirty Bird" dance of Jamaal Anderson fame before abruptly stopping himself.
Was he intimating that the Atlanta Falcons fans weren't worthy of being mocked? Or did he just want to get back to the sidelines for some much-needed hydration?
Who cares? It was awesome.
