Miami Dolphins' defensive end Jared Odrick established himself as a fan favorite this season thanks to his unique sack celebration. Every time he brings down a opposing quarterback, Odrick does the "Pee-Wee Herman" dance.

But, on Sunday, he was denied his chance to celebrate.

Odrick was awarded his sixth sack of the season several minutes after the fact last Sunday. The official score keeper determined that Odrick was the closest player to New York Jets' Mark Sanchez when the quarterback scrambled around in the pocket before sliding down at the line of scrimmage. As such, Odrick was given the sack.

"Tell the fans, I owe them one," the second year player said, smiling.

Odrick's six sacks on the season put him third on the team, behind linebackers Cameron Wake (8.5) and Jason Taylor (7.0). The total ranked him tied for 49th in the league in sacks on the season.
