Well, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters certainly thinks so.Near the end of the Rams’ 33-13 rout of the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football, Peters intercepted a Derek Carr pass and returned it 50 yards for the game’s final touchdown. All was fine, until he actually crossed the goal Jacob McQuaide Color Rush Jersey , line.

During his return, the two-time Pro Bowler leaped and grabbed his crotch while falling into the end zone, imitating a gesture now Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch did several times during the 2014 season when he was a member of the Seattle Seahawks.Similar to Lynch who was fined over $30,000 for making the gesture on two separate occasions, Peters was fined $13,369 by the NFL.“Yeah, it’s a lot of money,but it was worth it Johnny Hekker Jersey ,” Peters told ESPN.com Friday.“It’s all paying respect and loving the game,” Peters said of his touchdown celebration. “… Who knows if this [is] Marshawn’s last year playing in the league. S—, we was up, closed the game out, no better way to go out in Oakland. Who knows the next time we’ll get to play the Raiders in Oakland. They’re going to Vegas in what, a year and a half?”Peters and Lynch have a close relationship– Peters refers to the 32-year-old back as his cousin. Lynch was suspended for one game last season after making contact with an official while breaking up a fight between Peters, then with the Kansas City Chiefs, and several Raiders offensive linemen. Peters testified on Lynch behalf during an unsuccessful appeal attempt.“This was something that he had discussed with him before, if he was going to be able to make a play like that,” head coach Sean McVay told ESPN. “So it was a good way for those guys to kind of have an inside joke, laugh about it, and I think it all was in fun and lighthearted.”Quite the costly joke. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aaron Rodgers can’t lead a game-winning drive if he never gets the ball.That was the whole idea when Los Angeles‘ Ramik Wilson forced a fumble from Green Bay’s Ty Montgomery on a late kickoff return. That was also Todd Gurley’s thought moments later when he stopped running with a clear path to the end zone Lamarcus Joyner Jersey Black Friday , keeping Rodgers stuck on the sideline in the unbeaten Rams‘ eighth victory.“Man, forget fantasy,” Gurley said with a grin. “Forget Vegas. We got the win, so that’s all that matters.”Greg Zuerlein hit a 34-yard field goal with 2:05 left before Wilson forced and recovered Montgomery’s fumble on the ensuing kickoff, and Gurley’s prudent decision to go down wrapped up the Rams’ 29-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.Jared Goff passed for 295 yards and three touchdowns while the Rams (8-0) were sternly tested by the Packers (3-3-1).Both teams rallied from 10-point deficits to take a lead in front of a rollicking, bipartisan Coliseum crowd, but the Rams extended their best start since 1969 by capitalizing on two crushing special-teams mistakes by Green Bay.Rodgers threw for 286 yards, but he didn’t get a snap in the final 5:20.“That was a high-caliber, back-and-forth game,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “This team has demonstrated through eight games that while we have a long way to go, this team is capable of winning games in a bunch of different ways.”Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers with 8:50 left to put the Packers ahead 27-26, but Goff and Gurley drove the Rams into range for Zuerlein’s second field goal of the fourth quarter after a 25-yard punt by JK Scott.Montgomery then coughed up his return https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Pharoh-Cooper-Jersey , and Wilson pounced on the ball.“That play didn’t lose the game, but it took away an opportunity to win,” Rodgers said.Montgomery declined to talk after the game, but Wilson called his fumble-forcing hit “one of the biggest collisions I’ve been in.”Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the return man was supposed to take a touchback.“You trust your players on tough decisions, close decisions,” McCarthy said. “I think Ty was just trying to make a play.”In the final minute, Gurley ran 17 yards for a key first down and stopped before reaching the end zone, allowing the Rams to run out the clock.Josh Reynolds caught two touchdown passes for Los Angeles. Gurley had 114 yards rushing and 81 yards receiving, and he scored a touchdown in his franchise record-tying 11th consecutive game on a 30-yard pass in the third quarter .“That was probably my favorite (win) of the year,” said Goff, who went 19 for 35 without an interception.The Rams faced their largest deficit of the remarkable season when they trailed 10-0 early in the second quarter, but they calmly turned it into a 23-13 lead late in the third.Rodgers answered with two touchdown drives to grab a one-point lead for Green Bay in the fourth quarter Mark Barron Color Rush Jersey , but Goff countered his fellow Cal product and childhood hero after Aaron Donald sacked Rodgers on third down to stop the Packers’ next drive.“The urgency has to pick up, but there’s no momentum gained from a loss,” Rodgers said. “We can play with anybody, but we already knew that before this game. It’s not like this was some revelation.”Both teams had loud contingents of fans at the Coliseum, where Green Bay won the first Super Bowl in 1967. The Packers were greeted by a rowdy bunch of California Cheeseheads in Green Bay’s first trip to Los Angeles since the NFL returned in 2016.After Reynolds scored on a 19-yard grab late in the third, the Packers responded with Aaron Jones‘ 33-yard TD draw run up the middle with 13 seconds left.GURLEY AND CRAZYLEGSGurley’s scoring catch put Los Angeles ahead in the third quarter. The grab also extended Gurley’s TD streak to tie the Rams record set by Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch in 1950-51. Gurley leads the NFL with 15 touchdowns, and he became the fourth player in league history to score at least 15 touchdowns in the first eight games of a season, joining Jim Brown (17 in 1958) and Priest Holmes (15 in 2002 and 2004).SHIELDS SHINESSam Shields made several big plays for LA against his former team. The veteran defensive back caught a pass from Johnny Hekker on a fake punt, and he later downed a punt at the Green Bay 1 to set up the Rams’ defense for its safety. Shields played seven seasons with the Packers before his fourth concussion in 2016 nearly ended his career, but he returned to the NFL with the Rams this season.INJURIESPackers: WR Randall Cobb had four catches for 40 yards in his return from a three-game absence with a hamstring injury.Rams: WR Cooper Kupp missed his second straight game with a knee injury, opening the chance for Reynolds to shine.UP NEXTPackers: At New England on Nov. 4.Rams: At New Orleans on Nov. 4.
