After New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount scored a touchdown in the team's 34-9 victory over the Detroit Lions, he celebrated with a touchdown dance used by his former teammate, Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown.

Blount was released by the Steelers last week after he left the field before the end of the team’s 27-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

On Thursday, the Patriots signed the running back to a two-year contract. Blount played for New England in 2013, but signed with the during the offseason.

The touchdown came on his first carry for the Patriots.

After the game, Blount told reporters that was doing the dance as a tribute to Brown.

On Sunday, Blount ran for 78 yards on 12 carries and two touchdowns.
