Lions TE Joseph Fauria's NSYNC 'Bye Bye Bye' dance answers Jimmy Fallon's $10K challenge

(WXYZ) - Joseph Fauria, meet Jimmy Fallon.

The Lions rookie tight end busted out the moves to a familiar dance after scoring a touchdown in the second quarter Sunday.

Fauria echoed the moves of Justin Timberlake and NSYNC's 'Bye Bye Bye' music video.

What does that have to do with Fallon?

Earlier this month, the Late Night host and Timberlake performed the "Evolution of End Zone Dancing." The last dance in the video was "The Justin Timberlake (From NSync)." Fallon later challenged anyone in the NFL to execute a move from the video in a game.

The reward to the first player who pulls it off: $10,000 to the charity of their choice.

As far as we know, no one answered the challenge last week, so Fauria would be the first.

The tight end's second touchdown of the season put the Lions ahead 14-7 in the game, and will certainly get him some national attention.

All thanks to the moves of a boy band.
