Toward the end of Monday's game between the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Rams, Derek Carr threw an errant pass and Rams cornerback Marcus Peters intercepted it for a pick-six, finishing off his touchdown with a throwback celebration.
The celebration was an homage to Raiders running back, and Peters' cousin, Marshawn Lynch as he's well-known for that, most famously after his "Beast Quake" run for the Seahawks against the New Orleans Saints in the 2010 NFL playoffs.
Well, it appears that the NFL didn't take too kindly to Peters' showmanship.
This would be bad enough if Peters had just done the celebration and gotten fined, but they're really going to fine someone for shouting out their family?
It seems like a strange choice after so much has been made about the relatively new celebration rules. Apparently, you can still celebrate, but it just has to be NFL approved. Or, you have to be willing to shell out $13,000 for your antics.
Lucky for Peters, the Rams don't play the Raiders again this season, so he won't have an opportunity to celebrate like that again, and his wallet is probably grateful.
