The New Orleans Saints are getting a tough fight from the division rival Atlanta Falcons on Thursday Night Football, but they were able to gain a 14-10 lead midway through the second quarter after Drew Brees found tight end Jimmy Graham streaking down the sideline for a huge gain.

Not only did Graham haul in the catch, but he was able to take the ball into the endzone for the go ahead score.

After the touchdown, Graham threw down a big dunk that rattled the goal post.

Not only did Graham successfully dunk the ball over the goal post, but this was the unfortunate result:

Luckily, teams keep levels on the sidelines and the equipment crew was able to come out during the break and fix the aftermath of Graham’s score.
