Mandatory Football: The All-Time Best End Zone Antics to Celebrate the NFL Season Kickoff

Football season is here, and with it come a lot of touchdowns. After a score, many coaches will tell NFL players to “act like they’ve been there before” and simply hand the ball to the officials closest to them. But we’re not interested in that boring sportsmanship. We’re all about crazy, over-the-top celebrations like Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco used to do. We love it if a player pulls out a Sharpie, signs the ball, and hands it to a fan. We also love a classic spike. And, of course, any self-respecting player has to dance.

No matter the method, we love to see enthusiastic players go nuts after an important touchdown. They’re psyched, we’re stoked, everyone is happy. If you haven’t gotten your fill of football fun yet, here are some of our all-time favorite end zone antics in GIF form.
