Leonard Fournette Shoots A Free Throw In The Jaguars’ Epic Touchdown Celebration
Over the past two years, the NFL has been mired in politics, controversial suspensions, and relocation talks that have pitted city against city. But the “No Fun League” did one thing to bring some levity back to the field this year: It allowed players more leeway for on-the-field celebrations. While celebrations featuring sexual or violent actions are still illegal, players can now choreograph routines with their teammates.
During their Dec. 3 game versus the Indianapolis Colts, the resurgent Jacksonville Jaguars opted for another type of extra point after a five-yard touchdown run by Leonard Fournette: an “and 1” shot. After the touchdown, Jaguars players lined up like NBA teams, and Fournette threw a “free-throw shot” right between the goal posts.
Although the Jaguars’ celebration is an impressive piece of choreography, they’re not the first team to give a nod to another sport.
