The Miles Austin-Roy Williams Touchdown Celebration Was Worth the Penalty

The Cowboys blew two 7-point leads on Sunday against the Vikings on the road and saw Tony Romo likely throw away their season. Their first two touchdown passes went to Roy Williams — yes, that Roy Williams — who was pleased to find the end zone for the third straight game. After scoring his first TD to put the Boys up 7-0, he posed towards the crowd and then fellow receiver Miles Austin hurdled him like he was jumping a parking meter.

Keep in mind, Roy is 6’3″, so Austin has some serious hops to vault over the big man. The celebration resulted in a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, allowing the Vikings to start at the 45 after the kickoff went out of bounds. Luckily Dallas’ defense forced a three-and-out otherwise they would have had another touchdown celebration penalty to blame for their problems. Now they can just focus on everything else.

The penalty was actually called on Sam Hurd for flashing a Hook ’em Horns, not Miles Austin.
