Since the National Football League relaxed the rules on touchdown celebrations a couple of seasons ago, the Minnesota Vikings have come up with a couple of good ones. The best one, to this point, is probably the “Duck, Duck, Gray Duck” celebration that they broke out on a Monday night in Chicago last season, but Sunday night’s victory over the Green Bay Packers brought forth a potentially worthy challenger.

Following the 26-yard touchdown reception by Dalvin Cook in the first quarter. . .Cook’s first touchdown since Week 4 of 2017 (the game that he tore his ACL). . .the Vikings busted out a good, old-fashioned limbo party. Adam Thielen served as the “bar,” lifted into place by Tom Compton, Rashod Hill, and Laquon Treadwell. Cook, Stefon Diggs, and Brian O’Neill then took turns doing the limbo underneath him. . .though based on the way that O’Neill went through, I’m not sure if he’s ever actually limboed before.

Asked after the game about the celebration, Thielen said that the lightest guy (who would have been Diggs) was supposed to serve as the bar, but Cook really wanted to do the celebration and Diggs wasn’t right there right away, so Thielen stepped into the role instead.

What did you think of the touchdown celebration? Does it go to the top of the list?
