Who doesn't love a fat guy touchdown?

Chiefs defensive lineman Dontari Poe—all 346 pounds of him—scored one of the most entertaining touchdowns Sunday when he went over-the-top for a 1-yard score, reportedly becoming the heaviest player in NFL history to run for a TD. He gave the Chiefs an early 6-0 lead.

Dontari Poe is the heaviest man to ever score a TD in the NFL (346 pounds)

Nostalgic NFL fans should remember the Fridge, whose heyday in the 80s with the Bears featured the hefty defensive lineman lining up in the backfield a number of times. Perry rushed for two scores during the 1985 regular season and one memorable TD in Chicago's Super Bowl XX victory over the Patriots. 

I think I speak for all football fans when I say keep feeding Poe the pigskin.
