Watch: Sammy Watkin celebrates touchdown a bit too early

Let’s call it a rookie mistake: Sammy Watkins’ hot dogging got the better of him and, as a result, cost the Buffalo Bills a huge opportunity to go up big against the New York Jets on the road.

On a catch-and-run down the middle of the field, the rookie from Clemson had a surefire touchdown reception in his grips. But then he got cocky, pointing his finger in the air and slowing up before reaching the end zone, only to be brought down shy of the goal line by a Jets defender.

Two plays later, the Bills were able to score and take a commanding 21-7 lead in the second quarter.
