Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard broke the unwritten rule of playing on the road against the Dallas Cowboys, celebrating on the star after a big play.

Byard picked off Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in the end zone Monday and ran all the way to midfield to celebrate on the opposing logo:

Former receiver Terrell Owens pulled off the same move in 2000 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers, although he was leveled by a Cowboys player the second time he attempted it that game. Byard is lucky he didn't receive a similar treatment on Monday Night Football.

Still, Owens appreciated the homage to one of his more iconic moments:

With Michael Thomas doing a Joe Horn impression with a cell phone celebration Sunday, Week 9 has been a big week for notable 2000s receivers.
