The NFL’s relaxed celebration rules meant Steelers wideout Antonio Brown would have the opportunity to outdo himself when he found the end zone this fall. Instead, he played a supporting role after teammate Martavis Bryant hauled in a 27-yard touchdown catch and then dropped to a knee to roll some dice.
What it means for Martavis Bryant: Bryant scored his first touchdown since 2015, rewarding Pittsburgh’s faith after he was forced to sit out the entire 2016 season due to suspension. He had only two receptions in his season debut last week.
What it means for the Steelers: Bryant broke away from a host of Vikings defenders to give Pittsburgh an early 7-0. More importantly, it put pressure on Brown to step up his celebration game and top his teammate’s craps game. We’ll see if the All-Pro wideout can make good on his promise to take advantage of the league’s more lenient celebration rules.
