(CINCINNATI) — You’ve seen videos of football players celebrating in the end zone after scoring a touchdown, but Cincinnati Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson managed to bust a move as he ran into the end zone on Saturday’s Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Andy Dalton threw a 19-yard pass to Simpson. The only thing between Simpson and the end zone was Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington.
Simpson didn’t want to take any chances getting around Washington, who is 6’2” and 234 lbs., so he did a somersault over the defender and landed perfectly on two feet in the end zone, in a move you’d expect from a gymnast.
The Bengals beat the Cardinals 23-16, keeping their playoff hopes for the alive.
