WATCH: Miami Dolphins’ Mike Gesicki hits the Griddy on TD pass from Skylar Thompson

Business is starting pick up for the Miami Dolphins' offense in Buffalo.

Mike Gesicki and the Miami Dolphins came into Orchard Park with the daunting task of having Skylar Thompson as their starting quarterback to face an inspired and, quite frankly, loaded Buffalo Bills squad.

A matchup that looked like it would become a blowout — although we’re not sure those exist anymore — quickly became a competitive showdown. Following a couple of huge drops by the Bills, including one from Dawson Knox in the end zone, and two Josh Allen interceptions, the Dolphins finally pounced as Thompson hit Mike Gesicki for a seven-yard touchdown pass.

Of course, whenever one hears the name “Gesicki” during a broadcast that involves a touchdown, it’s a mortal lock some variation of the Griddy will quickly follow.

Now, whether or not you believe Gesicki performs a good version of the Griddy or not matters very little to the fifth-year tight end out of Penn State.

In fact, constant criticism from fans appears to fuel Gesicki’s desire to dance all over the place. Especially right there in the face of the Bills faithful.

Dolphins’ Mike Gesicki refuses to stop hitting the Griddy

When it comes to something like this, a closer look is always in order.

As ESPN’s Field Yates aptly stated, “Mike Gesicki was called the worst griddy-er of all time, and instead of shying away from it, he has leaned into it.”

Given the fact that Gesicki’s touchdown plus the two-point conversion by Tyreek Hill tied the game 17-17 at that point, most fans in Buffalo were likely in a state of sheer disbelief to even get mad at Gesicki’s latest iteration of the Griddy.
