The Cincinnati Bengals extended an early lead over the Houston Texans with a second quarter touchdown. Rookie sensation Andy Dalton hit Jerome Simpson for a 17-yard touchdown, giving them a 13 lead. Simpson added a lovely little celebration to his score, giving it a subtle hint of panache on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Cincy.
First, check out the video of Simpson’s touchdown catch from Dalton.
Simpson has shown some very good hands this season, and has become a reliable option to pair with rookie A.J. Green, who is seeing more and more double coverage these days.
That was Simpson’s third touchdown of the season. Prior to today’s game he had 36 catches for 577 yards. For Dalton, that was his 18th touchdown this season.
And how about that touchdown celebration? Behold, the Simpson Shimmy.
In addition to his hands, Simpson looks to have a nice future on the animated GIF circuit.
