Game Balls and Flip Phones! Week 9’s Best Celebrations
We are more than halfway through the NFL regular season, and some teams are shaping up to be contenders, while others performed worse than expected. A few teams are on a winning streak and are enjoying the post-game festivities; however, Week 9 is the first week the Rams’ celebration won’t be featured in this space after the Saints took them down in the Superdome. In Week 9we saw postgame locker rooms with chants and players performing their dance moves, which look eerily similar to my middle school cheerleading routine.
Note: The celebrations below are made public by team sites, media outlets, and players pages. We will add more when and if they become available.
The Best Celebration
While the Seahawks didn’t win the game, the did win the best celebration of the week! Also, I want to be a fly on the wall while they practice their choreography and come up with these moves!

The Celebration that honors the past
In the fourth quarter, Michael Thomas’s catch put the Saints by ten over the Rams, and Thomas pulled out a hidden flip phone, a brilliant ode to former Saints WR Joe Horn.
