NFL says refs in Broncos game were celebrating correct call, not touchdown with fist bump

Here’s the USAToday take on #Bumpgate.

For The Win

When it comes to touchdown celebrations in the NFL, a fist bump between teammates would be considered pretty mild and almost noteworthy for how quiet it is — unless the fist bump is between officials.

On Sunday after the Broncos’ CJ Anderson scored a touchdown, two officials shared a quiet fist bump — apparently forgetting that the game was televised and there were cameras everywhere.

The NFL’s vice president of communications, Michael Signora, told the Associated Press that the fist bump was “an acknowledgment of good mechanics between the two officials involved in making the call.”

Which certainly didn’t stop fans — and even Bills players from questioning the gesture.
