Isaiah McKenzie scored a rare touchdown during the opening game of the NFL season between the Buffalo Bills and LA Rams, but he was seemingly confident as he used the occasion to reveal the gender of his sister's baby.

The Bills thrashed the reigning Super Bowl Champions on Thursday night, as they won 31-10 at the SoFi Stadium in LA. The likes of Cooper Kupp, Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen stole the headlines, but McKenzie produced one of the most unique sporting moments ever as he revealed the gender of his sister's baby when celebrating his touchdown.

Some fans picked up on the fact that McKenzie screamed "It's a boy" into the camera after scoring in the third quarter, and were left slightly confused. But it's all been explained now, after the Bills posted a TikTok which showed McKenzie's family watching the game, and they all celebrated wildly after hearing the news.

It's not yet clear if the announcement was a surprise, or if the party was planned. But if a gender reveal party was put together, then McKenzie is perhaps the most confident NFL player ever.

All we do know is, his family are very happy to hear that they will be welcoming a new boy into their lives, as their celebrations demonstrated. The NFL often offers a range of unique celebrations, but this is certainly in a category of its own.

McKenzie has never been the main wide receiver for the Bills, and on Thursday night he only received the ball on two occasions. But he made sure one of them counted, as he fell into the endzone for a touchdown.

The 27-year-old has already equalled his scoring tally from last season, and perhaps this is his year after a quiet campaign last time out. But he's certainly started this season in fine form, and was anything but quiet on Thursday.

Kupp, Allen, McKenzie and Diggs made the headlines for their scoring, but Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was in the spotlight for the wrong reasons. Stafford only threw one passing touchdown, and of course it was to Kupp, but he threw three interceptions on a night to forget.

Allen showed up his opposite number by barely putting a foot wrong, with some fans saying that his performance was similar to one Tom Brady. The Bills are favourites to win the Super Bowl this year, and you can see why.
