Now that the NFL Season is successfully underway, it’s time to talk about the best touchdown celebrations 2020. Whether it’s a spike, a shimmy, a dance or a pre-planned group act, touchdown celebrations are one of the highlights of the game. The sheer jubilation of a triumphant athlete is infectious. We fans can’t get enough of the rare opportunity for hard-driving athletes to express themselves and have some fun.
But the NFL has had a love/hate relationship with the fan-favorite tradition of end-zone celebrations, even banning them at one point. In 1984, the Redskins’ (now The Washington Football Team) Fun Bunch was seemingly having too much fun with their touchdown celebrations. That’s when the league first specifically banned “excessive” celebrating or “premeditated” celebration by groups or individuals.
In 2017, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced the league was relaxing its rules on touchdown celebrations, in order to allow players to have more fun, and to help the league lose its growing reputation as the Fun Police.
Now that it’s been a few years since the league loosened the reigns on player celebrations, players like the Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster and the Vikings’ Adam Thielen have extended their star power based on their creative touchdown celebrations.
Truth be told, we love that touchdown celebrations are back and that the league has lightened up on player fun. We always look forward to the creative ways players come up with to celebrate scoring. These are the best touchdown celebrations of the 2020 NFL season so far.
