The Pittsburgh Steelers come up with new and interesting touchdown celebrations each week, and Sunday’s celebration was really out there.

They decided to reenact receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster’s illegal hit on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, which got him suspended a game. Martavis Bryant caught a nice touchdown late in the first half, and Smith-Schuster mocked laying out Bryant and taunting him, just as he did with Burfict.

It’s a bit of a weird celebration, though kind of funny especially when you recall that Bryant and Smith-Schuster had their own drama earlier this season . And if we’re being honest, there are plenty of Steelers fans who had no problem with the illegal hit Smith-Schuster put on Burfict, a villain in Pittsburgh because of some of the dirty hits he has put on Steelers players.

The good news is the NFL probably won’t suspend Smith-Schuster for this hit.
