Defensive lineman Kyle Williams has played for the Buffalo Bills for 12 seasons. Today could be his last game. With the Bills on the goal line in the third quarter, the team lined up the defensive tackle at fullback—and handed him the ball.
The Steelers took a 17-10 lead on the Patriots on a Martavis Bryant touchdown catch before halftime, and the celebration afterward took things to another level.
Aaron Rodgers returned to action today against the Panthers, and ended the first quarter by throwing a touchdown pass to Davante Adams. But let’s talk about what’s really important: the touchdown celebration Packers receivers pulled off afterward.
Touchdown celebrations are cool. Touchdown celebrations that pantomime sex are even cooler.
Here’s this week’s NFL celebration that makes little sense: After Leonard Fournette’s five-yard touchdown run today, some of the Jacksonville Jaguars lined up for a free throw.
The Steelers have put together a strong portfolio of touchdown celebrations this season, but they had a bit of a stumble Sunday against the Colts. After receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster scored in the third quarter, he celebrated by reenacting one of Week 9's NFL fights. Smith-Schuster portrayed Jalen Ramsey as teammate…
Up north in the CFL playoffs, the Ottawa Redblacks outdid any NFL team this season with a limbo celebration after a first-quarter touchdown by Diontae Spencer, who was the limbo stick after scoring. And one end is a guy named Rhymes!
The NFL relaxed its touchdown celebration rules this year, but some things are still verboten. For example, Le’Veon Bell was penalized earlier this year for punching the goalposts like Vai Sikahema.
This week’s excellent, creative touchdown celebration that wouldn’t have been possible without the NFL’s recent acceptance of fun came courtesy of Kansas City. The Chiefs took a 16-14 lead on the Dallas Cowboys with a Travis Kelce touchdown catch. Then, he and his teammates had a potato sack race.
Earlier this month, the Eagles scored a touchdown and celebrated with an elaborate baseball-themed celebration. Nelson Agholor threw a pretend ball, and Torrey Smith knocked it over the fence. Today, Alshon Jeffery scored on a long pass from QB Carson Wentz, and teammate Zach Ertz “plunked” him.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have been the NFL’s most reliable source of post-touchdown fun since the league relaxed its celebration rules, and after a JuJu Smith-Schuster score today, they showed off another move in their arsenal. For the enjoyment of all, Smith-Schuster and Le’Veon Bell put on a choreographed game of…
Golden Tate caught a long pass from Matthew Stafford, broke a few weak tackles by the Saints, and flipped into the end zone. It was pretty cool.
Famous South Jersey native and baseball player Mike Trout is at the Eagles game today, so the team’s offense performed an impressively elaborate baseball celebration to honor him (and possibly recruit him for the Phillies, who knows).
Odell Beckham made a nice fourth-quarter catch in the end zone to give the Giants their first points of the day against the Eagles. Then he got down on all fours, lifted his leg, and pretended to pee.
Roger Goodell is not having a great week. He’s off in the U.K. promoting the NFL’s sub-par football product by way of a team whose kicker was revealed this week to have written “I abused my wife” in journal entries from 2013.
Of course this touchdown celebration was penalized, because there is a legislated limit on the amount of awesome in one NFL play—and Antonio Brown blew right past it. Invent a Heisman Trophy for the NFL and award it to him now.
Tonight the Jacksonville Sharks celebrated a blowout win over Tampa Bay and a berth into the AFL playoffs with a touchdown celebration taken straight from The Most Electrifying Move In Sports Entertainment. And in the no-fun NFL, it would be illegal, illegal, illegal.
Doug Baldwin commemorated his Super Bowl lead-extending touchdown catch by pretending either to poop out the football, or on it. (It's not clear which, but no one saw it anyway; NBC's director cut away in time, warned by the voice of his vigilant dead mother. Thankfully, it was filmed from the stands.) But the bigger…
Thanks to Antonio Brown, the Steelers tied the Buccaneers at 10 near the end of the first quarter. The receiver's celebration was inspired.
