The Pittsburgh Steelers were trailing the Baltimore Ravens by 13 points in the third quarter of their key AFC North match up in the nightcap of the NFL’s Thanksgiving Day triple-header, so they needed a big play to cut the lead in half and draw within one score.

Luckily for the Steelers, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to drive the offense down and make things happen after some improvisation skills that led to a bit of a scramble to extend the play. Eventually, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was able to break loose from his defender and Ben Roethlisberger found him wide open in the back of the endzone.

Once Sanders found his way in the endzone, he decided to celebrate by rubbing the salt in the wounds of Ravens fans by ripping off the dance of former Ravens great Ray Lewis. Check out Sanders’ interpretation of the dance:

Surprisingly, Sanders has done one of the best copycat performances of the dance that I have seen in recent memory.
