Ryan Mathews did the LT ball flip celebration after touchdown (GIF)
Ryan Mathews had a LaDainian Tomlinson-type game for the San Diego Chargers on Thursday night, so it was fitting that he celebrated his touchdown run like he was LT.
Mathews went for 127 yards on 29 carries — his fifth 100-yard game of the season — and he scored on a 23-yard touchdown run against the Denver Broncos in the third quarter to make it 24-10. After going into the end zone, Mathews struck the LaDainian Tomlinson pose and did the ball flip:
Mathews did the celebration while airborne, which made him look a bit like Liu Kang flying through the air, but that was definitely a nod to the Chargers legend. The Fresno State product is not having his best career season with San Diego, but he’s definitely putting together a nice one for the Chargers.
