The Eagles have had a lot of chances to celebrate this season. And, gosh, have they taken advantage of those opportunities. It’s gotten a little ridiculous how much fun the Eagles are having, with more and more exotic celebrations by the week.
So we decided to rank them. But rather than rank them from 10 to 1 — how can you compare a walk-off win and a blowout where the defense is doing the Electric Slide — we’ve picked the best of a bunch of categories. Let’s get to the dancing!
Best pregame celebration
Fletcher Cox and Jalen Mills had a fun little dance before the thriller over Chicago.
Best old white guy celebration
That’s longtime Eagle Brent Celek excited about the Eagles going streaking over the last eight weeks.
Best ‘we’re all just kids out there’ celebration
Someone get this Mack Hollins kid a real backpack.
Best pick-six shimmy
Jalen Mills had an interception returned for a score and still had the energy to shake with Rodney McLeod.
Best DL dancer
This is between four guys on the defensive line. First, there’s Chris Long. (Hint: He’s got no shot.)
Then there’s Vinny Curry. (He won’t win either.)
Fletcher Cox is back with a solo jam.
He loves that dance.
And air guitar.
But on the DL, Fletch is the runner up. Tim Jernigan is the best dancer in the NFL. Don’t at me.
Which is better, Kenjon Barner sharing with the entire offense:
Or Nelson Agholor giving Jason Kelce the monster spike:
Best family photo
The Birds offense took a group photo after a Zach Ertz touchdown last week. Usually Ertz is big on the “what’s my name” celebration.
I call it the “Ertz, don’t it.”
Best Thomas the Tank Engine impersonation
All aboard the #JayTrain, where there’s never confusion and delay.
Best trust fall
Or maybe worst trust fall.
Best ‘No this isn’t a cut scene from Madden’ celebration
Best BDawk impersonation
Best Kill the man who just got the ball celebration
Best sports celebration: basketball edition
The Eagles have made headlines for their sports celebrations. While the other sports have gotten more notoriety, here’s two low-key hoops ones, including a little Eurostep action from the running backs:
Here’s a handshake and a killer crossover from the defensive backs.
Best sports celebration: baseball edition
This is what started it all for the Eagles upping their celebration game. The Torrey Smith home run got the Birds going.
Then Mack Hollins got a chance at the plate.
Then Alshon Jeffery got a little too close to the dish and Ertz hit him. Clear the benches!
Best sports celebration: bowling edition
Alshon Jeffery knocked ‘em all down with this one.
Best ‘three drinks in at a wedding’ dance
Boogie woogie woogie.
Best last-second field goal celebration
Carrying Jake Elliott off the field was pretty cool, but this celebration just before it is great too.
Still, not as great as the kid’s parents in the stands.
Best fan reaction that isn’t a player’s parents in the stands
What, were you expecting people spelling?
