Colts TE Kylen Granson commemorated his first career NFL touchdown in the best way possible. The pass catcher posted a baby-themed photoshoot to capture the moment.
That shoot is now going viral on social media as fans and followers weigh in. The reaction is nearly as funny as the TD post, itself.
Granson and the Colts faced off against the Houston Texans on Sunday, pulling out a divisional win, 31-20. In that contest, Indianapolis built a big lead before holding on late.
The matchup provided a number of “firsts” for Indy players, including first-round pick Anthony Richardson’s first win as a starter. Though he left the game early with injury, he recorded a pair of rushing touchdowns before his exit.
But maybe the best moment revolved around Kylen Granson.
The tight end was a fourth round pick out of SMU in the 2021 NFL Draft. Over his first two seasons in the league, he was unable to find the endzone.
That elusive first score was finally recorded on Sunday.
It was ruled that Kylen Granson reached the ball past the goal line and the @Colts have put up 28 points in the first half!

After initially being ruled down just short of the goal line, the call was overturned to give Granson the tuddy. An impressive play, he stretched past the pylon while keeping his body inbounds to find paydirt.
And how else would one honor that awesome moment other than a photoshoot?
Granson posted a newborn-themed set of pictures to his Instagram page.

“After three years of trying… It’s finally here,” the caption read.
Followers couldn’t help but to post their reactions in the comments section.
“Come on, man,” said QB Anthony Richardson.
“Log off the internet,” wrote teammate Mo Alie-Cox.
“Get outta here with this,” said fellow tight end Drew Ogletree.
Well done, Kylen, and congratulations!!
