Colts punter Pat McAfee perfectly executed a fake punt in the second quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Steelers, and he celebrated appropriately.
McAfee tried his best to imitate Conor McGregor’s signature strut walk after completing a pass to tight end Erik Swoope on a fake punt attempt. It was a fourth-and-six situation, and the Steelers were up 14-0. The Colts didn’t want the game to get out of hand, so they dialed up a fake punt. McAfee threw a dime to Swoope for a 35-yard gain, setting up the Colts with a first-and-goal from the eight-yard line (they finished off the drive with a touchdown).
Here’s what his celebration looked like:
You can judge for yourself, but we think McGregor did it much better than McAfee.
McAfee can strut all he wants, but the Steelers absolutely dominated them where it mattered—on the scoreboard.
