Just running into the end zone isn't good enough anymore. A couple players on Sunday decided to take the more complicated route over the goal line, and do a forward flip for the score.
Rams linebacker Daren Bates scooped up a fumble and did a pretty sweet spinning flip into the end zone.
Moments later, and a time zone away, Pittsburgh receiver Emmanuel Sanders had the same idea. He was all alone at the end of a long score, and he went head over heels into the end zone to score against the Jets (and it seemed like he landed pretty hard on his back, which is always the problem with the flip into the end zone).
Well, we know what the preferred method of celebrating touchdowns is this week in the NFL.
