The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the league in creative touchdown celebrations.
Regardless of the outcome of their matchup against division rival Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the highlight of the game has already been made.
Following a wide open, 31-yard touchdown strike to Juju Smith-Schuster, the receiver and running back Le’Veon Bell celebrated by playing a game of hide and seek.
The result was one of the best celebrations we’ve seen all year.
The new celebration rules in the NFL allow the players a little more freedom than they’ve had in the past. This sort of thing would have immediately drawn flag last season; it might have still been pushing it under the new rules too, though.
Despite all the fun the Steelers are having on the field, they’ve struggled to pull away from the Bengals. Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton is already having one of his better games of the season, and has thrown two touchdowns passes in the first half.
If the Steelers can manage to find the end zone a few more times, they’ll have a chance to top this celebration. It’s going to take something really special, though.
