Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph decided to test out the NFL’s new celebration rules on Monday Night Football.

After scoring a touchdown against the Chicago Bears, on a pass from quarterback Case Keenum, Rudolph played a quick game of duck-duck-goose.

You can watch the video of the score and the celebration below:

The NFL still doesn’t want players to taunt the opposition or do anything that is deemed inappropriate, but they have been trying to let players have a little more fun after scoring plays. Perhaps they grew sick of being called the No Fun League.

Plus, this was a 3-2 game in the third quarter. That’s a hockey score, not a football score, but that’s how this thing was going. That touchdown was the most excitement the fans had seen all night. Why not let them celebrate a bit? If there’s ever a time to celebrate some scoring, it’s when you’re in danger of winning a football game in 2017 with just a field goal.

The Vikings did go on to win, though a bit more scoring happened late in the game. The final score was 20-17, which looks a lot more like what you’d expect out of these teams.
