New York Giants rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux created as much buzz off the field as he did on the field Sunday when the team clinched a playoff spot with a win over the Indianapolis Colts.
In the second quarter, Thibodeaux fired Nick Foles and celebrated by making snow angels on the grass at MetLife Stadium. Apparently, he didn’t know that Foles was in pain right next to him and the quarterback wouldn’t be back in the game.

«When I realized he was hurt, that’s when we started to get up,» he said after the game, via ESPN. «When you’re doing a celebration, you’re not looking to see who’s doing what. But I hope he’s on the mend and he’s okay.»
Foles’ teammate, Ryan Kelly, was upset with the celebration, calling it «horses—«.
