Four Dallas Cowboys players were fined by the National Football League after their Salvation Army-themed touchdown celebration.
During Dallas’ game against New York Giants on Thanksgiving Day, tight end Peyton Hendershot found the end zone, so in celebration, he and three teammates ran behind the end zone and celebrated with a game of Whack-A-Mole.
Dalton Schultz, Jake Ferguson, and Sean McKeon hopped into the big, red Salvation Army bucket on the sideline and each of them began popping up and down while Hendershot socked them on the head like the classic arcade game.
It was fun at the time, but they got fined for it.
Cowboys tight ends Dalton Schultz ($13,261), Jake Ferguson ($4,895), Peyton Hendershot ($3,944) and Sean McKeon ($4,994) were all fined, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Ezekiel Elliott will be getting his own fine after ge jumped in Salvation Army kettle on Sunday. Elliott scored a late touchdown in the team’s massive victory over the Indianapolis Colts and decided to re-create his Salvation Army kettle celebration from his rookie season.
We’ll see if Elliott can continue his scoring streak when the Cowboys meet the Houston Texans in Week 14.
