Jerome Simpson’s Touchdown Flip

There have been prettier touchdowns, there have been more important touchdowns, but for my money I think that Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson scored the greatest touchdown the world has ever seen. In the Christmas Eve game against the Arizona Cardinals, Simpson was heading towards the end zone when he found his route blocked by two Cardinals defenders. So, what did he do to score the touchdown? Oh, he simply did a gymnastic flip over the defenders and perfectly stuck the landing for six points. Note how even the ref is caught by surprise and takes a few seconds before he rules the play a touchdown. Congratulations, Jerome Simpson, you may be the first football player to bring a literal meaning to the word “touchdown.”
