Simone Biles was left overjoyed on Thanksgiving as she watched husband Jonathan Owens run in a defensive touchdown for the Green Bay Packers.
In a major surprise, the Packers came charging out of the blocks against Detroit in the first of three Thanksgiving games on Thursday.
They took a 23-6 lead into half-time thanks to three early touchdowns, one of which was a huge defensive turnover.
Packers linebacker Rashan Gary managed to get to Lions quarterback Jarred Goff and force a strip sack.
The ball kindly fell to Owens who scooped it up and ran it into the end zone from 27 yards.

Biles immediately took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express her delight at her husband’s play.
In response to the NFL posting a video of his touchdown, she wrote: ‘THATS MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!! MY MANS MY MANS MY MANSSSSS LFGGGGGGOOOOOO!’
Later in the game, Owens then produced a huge tackle to stop Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs in his tracks.
The seven-time Olympic medalist is a passionate fan of her husband and regularly attends his Packers games.
Just last week, she was at Lambeau Field to watch him beat the Los Angeles Chargers 23-20.
The gymnast, 26, dressed for the occasion as she donned a black puffer jacket with the No. 34, Owens’ jersey number, emblazoned on the front in Packers green and topped of the look with a pair of emerald sunglasses.

Owens and Biles tied the knot for a second time with a lavish ceremony in Cabo San Lucas in May.
They previously exchanged vows on April 22 in Houston, Texas to make their marriage legal ahead of their nuptials in Mexico.
Biles has been a regular feature at her husband’s NFL games, even claiming the postponement of the 2020 Olympics had the single upside of allowing her to getting to cheer him on in person.
She has continued to be a supportive wife throughout this NFL season, proudly congratulating Owens when he signed with the Packers in May and revealing she ‘bawled her eyes out’ after sending him off to training camp.
