Russell Wilson, Antonio Brown, and other NFL stars show off new touchdowns celebrations

The NFL season kicked off Thursday night and, this year, they changed the rules to allow touchdown celebrations. So on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy had some of the league’s biggest stars show off their best dance moves.

Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson did the “I Can’t Dance” celebration, where he danced awkwardly before walking away. Russell’s teammate Michael Bennett did the “Microwave Burrito,” which included pretending to put a burrito in a microwave, waiting for it, and then taking it out and spiking it as if it were a football.

The celebrations still can’t be violent or sexual in nature, like the hilarious Key & Peele sketch that had “McCringleberry” thrusting his hips. So Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb found another way to move his hips. Cobb said, “My touchdown celebration dance is ‘The bad Hula-Hoop,’” and then he pretended to swing a Hula-Hoop — that kept falling to the ground.

Denver Broncos star and Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller strutted around doing the “Sexy T-Rex.” Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton did the “Slow Mo Nice Happy Guy Dance.” And Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis did the “Steph Curry.” But the biggest and best celebration was Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown’s Titanic celebration. Brown said, “My touchdown celebration is called, ‘Jack, I’m flying,’ and then he mimicked the scene from Titanic where Rose stood at the front of the ship holding her arms out.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC. Watch clips and full episodes of The Tonight Show free on Yahoo View.
