Steelers roll Colts 45-10 on Sunday Night Football
Monday December 7th, 2015

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown earned an excessive celebration penalty for his unique performance after returning a punt for a touchdown.

With the game against the Colts already out of reach, Brown’s 71-yard return put Pittsburgh up 45–10 with four minutes to play.

Brown punctuated the electric return with a one-of-a-kind celebration, leaping into the goalpost at full speed and straddling it between his legs.

The stunt earned Brown a penalty because he used the goalpost as a prop in his celebration.
