Joseph Fauria's touchdown dance highlight reel keeps growing

Joseph Fauria's rookie season has been an entertaining one. With a three-touchdown performance against the Browns on Sunday, Fauria now has seven catches, five TDs ... and four entertaining celebrations.

He added to his repertoire early in Week 6, after a 1-yard grab versus the Browns (GIF via Guyism):

Folks on Twitter who know more about these sorts of things report that dance is called the "Gas Pedal". He settled for a simple slam dunk over the goal post following his second TD in Cleveland, but then went back to the well for his third score (GIF via BuzzFeed Sports):

His moves after a Week 3 TD in Washington were even more recognizable.

Fauria, answering a challenge from late-night host Jimmy Fallon, broke out 'N Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" dance. Fallon earlier had pledged to pay the fine for any player who used that dance in an NFL celebration. Fauria was not punished by the league for it, so Fallon instead pledged $10,000 in Fauria's name to the Michigan chapter of Make-a-Wish.

Fauria's post-touchdown shenanigans started back in Week 1. After scoring for the first time in his NFL career, he did ... this:

The simplest of all his celebrations came back in the preseason (video here). Fauria caught a TD pass at home against the Patriots, then performed a leaping, between-the-legs spike -- an homage to his uncle, former NFL player Christian Fauria, who used to punctuate touchdowns with the same show.
