Here Are the Most Popular NFL TD Celebrations of 2013

Friday the Wall Street Journal compiled a breakdown of every touchdown celebration in the NFL this season, all 1,150 of them. The top celebration of 2013? Believe it or not, “celebrate with team/do nothing notable” checks in atop the list at nearly 26 percent. The “jump-and-bump” came in second at 11.3 percent, followed by dancing at nine percent. Remarkably, the traditional spike has only been done 79 times.

Here are a couple our favorites from the 2013 season, in GIF form, and in no particular order.
