Explaining the JuJu Smith-Schuster TD celebration, and Vince Williams’ savage tendencies

Fans were left wondering “WHAT?” at two events during the Steelers’ win over the Texans, and we explain both.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Houston Texans Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Houston Texans 34-6 on Christmas Day, and it was a game where fans around the globe could just sit back and watch their favorite football team coast to an easy win over an inferior opponent.

During the game, however, there were a couple of situations which might have left fans asking, “What?!”

The first situation was after Le’Veon Bell’s 10-yard rushing touchdown, when the team broke out into a celebration, and not many, including Kurt Warner and Mike Tirico, knew what was going on.

Here’s the celebration:

After the game, JuJu Smith-Schuster took to Twitter to explain exactly what he was doing in the celebration — a snowball fight, but more importantly, mimicking Buddy the elf from the movie ‘Elf’.

After seeing that, the celebration starts to make sense. However, there was another situation which caused some unease, and that was what Vince Williams did after a failed two-point conversion attempt to Deandre Hopkins.

Check it out:

After Hopkins dove for the football, he laid on the ground for a second before getting up. Clearly, Williams saw this as a perfect opportunity to lay next to his opponent. Why? Who knows why, but it was funny. Although funny, it did draw a 15-yard taunting call on the weakest taunting infraction yet this year.

Some might hate these antics, but it’s clear the Steelers are having fun while playing a game...something I have no problem with!
