For those who don’t remember, Tony Scheffler was drafted as a Denver Bronco and spent four seasons before being shipped out to Detroit. He had signed an extension with the Broncos just days before being traded.

To say there may be hard feelings is blatantly obvious.

No matter why the stellar pass catching tight end was dealt or how he feels about it, he has become one of the primary red zone targets for a potent Lions’ attack that boasts some of the most talented players in the NFL.

While Scheffler is happy with where he is now, there are still hard feelings to the people in charge of the Denver Broncos organization and getting in the end zone wasn’t enough for the former Bronco.

With the Detroit Lions knocking on the door of the end zone, they lined up in the standard goal line jumbo formation with just Calvin Johnson lined up to the left.

The Lions brought Scheffler in motion from the right edge to the left and snapped the ball. Scheffler quickly pulled through the backfield toward the right side and faked two blocks before he found himself wide open on the doorstep.

Stafford hit the receiving end for the score, and that’s when the fun began.

First, the former Bronco did the fake spike, and then proceeded to "Tebow" to the crowd by going down on one knee in sign of prayer. As if that weren’t enough, Calvin Johnson walked over to him and they shared in a mocking Mile High Salute.

What a better way to stick it to the team that broke your heart than making them wish they hadn’t made that move.
