In what is sure to become a trend this season, St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn "Kaepernicked" after sacking San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the first quarter of Thursday night's game.

A full GIF of the sack can be seen below.

The play caught the nation's attention. Even the NFL took note of Quinn's sack and celebration:

Between Tebowing and Kaepernicking, defenders have ways to make a sack sting a little more. Quinn won't be the last defender to do the quarterback's trademark celebration after a sack. He just did it on the national stage and helped his team grab the momentum early in the game.
