The NFL relaxed their touchdown celebration rules this season, which worked out extremely well for fans, and players alike. As the regular season comes to a close, we take a look back at five of our favorite celebrations from this season:
5. The Detroit Rockettes
During week 15, the Detroit Lions celebrated a touchdown by paying homage to the Rockettes against the Chicago Bears halfway through the second quarter. The score was set up by a spectacular grab by Marvin Jones for 58 yard gain, capped off by a four yard pass from Matthew Stafford to TJ Jones.
4. Minnesota Vikings Leapfrog
This group celebration was set up three big time catches from Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen. Thielen caught a 12 yard pass from Case Keenum for the touchdown against the Washington Redskins in week 10.
3. Eagles Dinger
The Philadelphia Eagles celebrated Alshon Jeffery’s 53 yard catch and run by coordinating a home run celebration. What made this even more fitting was Los Angeles Angles superstar Mike Trout was in attendance for their week 8 victory over the the San Francisco 49ers.
2. The ‘Golden’ Elbow
