When Chandon Sullivan celebrated his interception against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, it called to mind a recent moment in Packers history involving former Packers great Nick Collins. Sullivan went to his knees in the end zone and held the ball in his right hand, with arms outstretched. 

Collins did the same thing in Super Bowl XLV after returning a pick for a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Whether or not Sullivan intended the moment as a direct homage, he wasn't shying away from the comparison on Twitter on Monday morning.

It was Sullivan's first career interception. He didn't return it for a touchdown, but rather ran backward to his team's own end zone for the celebration. 

Sullivan, an undrafted free agent who spent last season with the Eagles, made one of several key plays by the secondary. Kevin King and Jaire Alexander posted interceptions, as well, and Will Redmond had his best day with Green Bay after a shaky week against Philadelphia.
