Not everyone gets the chance to score a touchdown in the NFL. Some players never play a down in the league, let alone make it into the end zone.
Some players have become synonymous with certain TD celebrations, and others have gone the extra mile and coined their own unique celebrations. Watching a player boast after putting his team up on the board just adds another element of excitement to the game. It pumps up the fans, and it’s a great opportunity for a player to stand out in what’s always been a game with an emphasis on the team.
While some celebrations are certainly unique, not all of them are all that memorable. Some are just terrible, and some can even be seen as offensive (Randy Moss mooning the masses at Lambeau). But while every season is bound to produce a highlight reel of ridiculous celebration follies, it’s guaranteed to create a few memorable ones. And as long as they’re entertaining, who cares if they’re good or not?
With that said here’s a look at 10 more of the most memorable celebrations in football.

1 The Lambeau Leap
It all started when safety LeRoy Butler jumped into the stands at Lambeau Field after scoring off a lateral from his teammate Reggie White. Afterwards wideout Robert Brooks made the move popular by regularly performing it after a touchdown. While so many fan favourite celebrations are slowly becoming casualties of rules changes, the Lambeau Leap has been grandfathered, so no one can touch this iconic celebration. What really makes this one special is that it’s one of the only celebrations that involves the fans. While most celebrations are focused on solely the player, this one is so huge because of the players’ interaction with the crowd and their reactions to the score.
