It was a homecoming for Jerick McKinnon at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and he got his moment to shine.
McKinnon caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Case Keenum for the Minnesota Vikings first touchdown of the day against the Atlanta Falcons. To celebrate, he did the infamous 'Dirty Bird' dance in front of the Falcons crowd.
McKinnon is from Marietta, Georgia and a graduate of Sprayberry High School. He went to Georgia Southern and was drafted in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Jamal Anderson made the Dirty Bird famous during the 1998 season, and the Falcons beat the Vikings in the 1998 NFC Championship that year.
