Jordan Matthews uses football as Nintendo cartridge after first Bills TD

Wide receiver Jordan Matthews scored his first touchdown as a Buffalo Bill Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, and he celebrated the occasion with a tribute to one of the great struggles of 1980s and ’90s childhood.

After quarterback Tyrod Taylor found Matthews in the end zone to give the Bills a 7-3 lead in the second quarter, the receiver, without missing a beat, pretended the football was a Nintendo cartridge, blew into it, jammed it into a make-believe console and began miming the act of playing a video game.

Who could forget blowing into the bottom of those cartridges when they didn’t turn on correctly? Never mind the fact that it probably didn’t work.

Fellow receiver Zay Jones joined Matthews in the celebration. What do you think they were playing? Tecmo Bowl? Madden NFL ’94?

Bills fans were quick to notice – and give kudos to – the celebration on Twitter.
