After the 2016 season came to an end, the NFL decided to relax league rules surrounding excessive and group celebrations, allowing teams and players to get creative with their post-touchdown performances.
As a result, 2017 was full of memorable touchdown celebrations, like the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ hide-and-seek celebration between wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and running back LeVeon Bell, the Minnesota Vikings‘ post-touchdown game of duck, duck, goose, and the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles‘ group rendition of the Electric Slide.

Without further ado, here are the best touchdown celebrations of 2018.
