The Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver was fined by the NFL for his pompom touchdown celebration during last week’s AFC Wild Card Round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the league fined Hill $12,875 for unsportsmanlike conduct, although no flag was thrown on the play.
The celebration occurred during the third quarter of Kansas City’s 42-21 win after Hill scored a touchdown.
If you’ve been watching the NFL for an extended amount of time, then you might remember the celebration was reminiscent of Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens, who shook pompoms after scoring a touchdown while he was a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
Hill recorded five receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown in last weekend’s game.
Kansas City may need a similar offensive performance Sunday when it hosts the Buffalo Bills in a highly anticipated AFC Divisional Round clash.
