Despite starting quarterback Carson Palmer being inactive for last night's game due to a concussion, the Arizona Cardinals managed to defeat the San Francisco 49ers 33-21 with their backup quarterback Drew Stanton.

Stanton may have only completed 11 of his 28 passes for 124 yards, but he managed to score two touchdowns, both to the Cardinals' number one wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald, a touchdown which pretty much secured the win for Arizona on the night.

Fitzgerald and the rest of his teammates celebrated the touchdown together, which provided us all with a very comical moment.

As the wide receiver caught the ball in the endzone and the score was called, he went to celebrate with his offensive lineman Earl Watford, but his teammate wasn't ready for what was to come.

As you can see in the video below, the two went up to bump each other in the air to celebrate. Fitzgerald landed back on his feet, but Watford did not, and he came crashing down on his back very comically. Whoops, probably shouldn't laugh at it!

The wide receiver was too pumped to pick up the lineman, so he went and celebrated with the rest of his teammates, but Watford was back on his feet in no time at all with no damage done which is good for Cardinals fans.

Arizona would go on to score another touchdown while also getting a field goal and a safety in the fourth quarter, but they'll be glad that no injury occurred to Watford after his crash landing.
