The NFL, in its infinite wisdom, has put a ban on its own team websites and accounts from taking video and GIFs from the games and posting it. That has teams scrambling to come up with creative ideas to continue to post about touchdowns, with varying levels of success. Let’s check in on them.
The Lions are off to a good start, as Theo Riddick scored early.
Ahh, the old animated Touchdown sign. Well, surely they have something else ready if they score again.
I guess the Lions account wasn’t ready for multiple scores.
The Patriots scored with a LeGarrette Blount touchdown run, they went with a Blount graphic.
As did the Steelers when Sammie Coates caught a long bomb.
The Browns–despite being screwed by a league call last week–are the only ones that seem to be retweeting the NFL account, which is probably what the league wants.
The Vikings had an Adam Thielen graphic ready when he scored.
But sorry, Matt Asiata. None for you. Looks like Thielen may get plenty of Face time today.
And finally, there’s the Ravens, who are going the ’80s movie route.
