If the whole running back thing doesn’t work out for the Indianapolis ColtsNyheim Hines, maybe he can look to be an Olympic gymnast.

The most impressive play in the Detroit Lions-Colts game wasn’t anything between the whistles, not even Hines’ pair of first-half touchdowns. It came when Hines celebrated his touchdowns with a celebration that would make any cheerleader envious.

Hines did a front flip with a spin in mid-air after both touchdowns, which is a little more impressive than the usual “let’s gather in the end zone and act like we’re posing for a picture” celebration.

We know Hines is a great athlete. He showed that on both scores. But his celebrations after those plays were even more impressive than the touchdowns themselves.
