It wasn't quite Terrell Owens(notes) running to midfield and slamming the ball on the Dallas Cowboys star, but Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson did a star-stomping celebration of his own Sunday during his team's 34-27 road victory.
After scoring what would become the game-winning touchdown, Johnson ran to the helmet painted in the end zone at Cowboys Stadium, stood on the star and raised his arms in a clear homage to Owens' infamous touchdown celebration from 2000.
Nobody wearing stripes or in the CBS booth seemed to notice the celebration, which could have drawn a taunting penalty given the NFL's recent crackdown on fun. The Cowboys had been called for a crucial 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on their previous touchdown which ended up giving Tennessee excellent field position following the kickoff.
