Video: Steelers Receiver Antonio Brown Straddled the Goalpost After Scoring a Touchdown

Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown may be in the form of his life, but the wide receiver might be regretting his bizarre touchdown celebration against the Colts.

Brown’s unorthodox celebration came after a 71-yard punt return – his third score of the night as the Steelers blew Indianapolis away 45-10.

The officials gave Brown an unsportsmanlike penalty for, and I quote, “using the goalpost as a prop.”

Now there’s some terminology I bet we don’t hear again this season!

After the game, the 27-year-old put the celebration down to his excitement at having scored three times during the game.

He said: “I was full of excitement.”

“I tried to stick it at the goalpost, and it just didn’t work out.”

The big win over the Colts puts the Steelers at 7-5 this season, as they attempt to close in on the highly impressive Cincinnati Bengals, who they play next week.

After that Pittsburgh host the Broncos before finishing the regular season with visits to Baltimore and Cleveland.
