The most entertaining part of a football game is when somebody scores a touchdown, but how they celebrate can sometimes be even more entertaining. A lot of players all have their traditional style of celebration. Rob Gronkowski spikes the ball, Tony Gonzales and Jimmy Graham would dunk the ball through the goalpost, players in the Green Bay do the Lambeau leap, and Jamal Anderson would do the “dirty bird” dance.
Nowadays the NFL has gotten more strict with celebrations and now give out 15 yard “unsportsmanlike” penalties to players if they celebrate with the football or celebrate for too long. So, you would think players would stop the excessive celebration right? WRONG! These guys still celebrate a lot when they score, as they should! So we decided to make a little list of some of our favorite touchdown celebrations over the years.
5. David Nelson (Buffalo Bills)
David Nelson of the Buffalo Bills scored a touchdown in Dallas Cowboy stadium and decided to give the ball to his girlfriend. It just so happened though that his girlfriend was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. You’ll want to take a look at this.
4. Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers)
Our #4 happened just last week when Antonio Brown of the Steelers scored his 3rd touchdown of the game and out of pure excitement did the first thing he could think of.
3. Randy Moss (Minnesota Vikings)
The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers are huge rivals, and Randy Moss let the Packers fans know how he felt about them.
2. Terrell Owens (San Francisco 49ers)
I remember watching this game and seeing Owens celebrate and just thinking how awesome it was. I remember I even tried it out on the playground with my friends when we would play football at recess and lunch.
1. Joe Horn (New Orleans Saints)
Our #1 is by far our favorite celebration we’ve ever seen. Not only did Joe Horn have a celebration in mind, but he scored on the perfect side of the field to make it possible. This celebration alone is why Joe Horn will always be remembered in the NFL.
