NFL players have gotten very creative since the league relaxed their touchdown celebration policy ahead of the 2017 season. From doing mock weightlifting sessions, referencing movies, “playing” baseball, to doing “Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots” together, each week brings out new inventive ways for players to celebrate.

In 2018, the players have continued to turn touchdown celebrations into a work of art.

 

 

In case you didn’t know about the rule changes from last year, here’s what the NFL updated:

1. Players can use the football as a prop in celebrations
2. Players can celebrate on the ground
3. Group demonstrations are (finally) allowed

After being mocked as the “No Fun League” for restricting players’ celebrations too much, players now have a wide canvas to have fun when they score.
