The New York Jets defeated their divisional rivals the Buffalo Bills 37-31 on Thursday night, with their offense bouncing back into action after their week one loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Wide receiver Eric Decker was the top performer on the passing offense on the night for both teams, having six catches for 126 yards and a touchdown, with his longest play being 35 yards.

On his sole touchdown of the night, Decker caught a five-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick with 3:53 left to play in the first half, but his celebration with a fan will be the most memorable part of the play.

After he had caught the pass and scored, the 29-year-old found a sole Jets fan in the front row and went over to celebrate with him, by headbutting him. Crazy as it may seem, the fan was also willing to headbutt Decker back.

As you can see in the videos below, the headbutt will probably be more memorable for the fan as he'll have a nice bruise on his forehand, although it could be forgetful at the same time, depending on how much beer the fan had drank to lead him to do the act in the first place or how many brain cells were lost from the collision.

That's going to leave a mark, but as Phil Simms said on CBS coverage of the game when asked by Jim Nantz why the fan would do such a thing, 'beer is a wonderful thing'.

Fingers crossed the fan doesn't have any sort of a headache today, otherwise the NFL will be putting him on concussion protocol...
