One of the best parts about living in the year 2017 is that no matter how boring some of the games around the NFL may be, someone on Twitter is always going to find and comment about a random moment or sequence during a game that ends up going viral. Week 10’s group of games were not the most entertaining of the season, for sure, but there was still plenty for NFL fans to tweet about.
So whose tweets were among the best when it came to commenting on what went on this week around the league?
Vontaze Burfict ejected for making contact with an official
Polarizing Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict found himself at the center of another controversy on Sunday. Midway through the second quarter of the Bengals’ Week 10 matchup with the Tennessee Titans, Burfict was being held back by a game official to prevent the linebacker from getting into a scuffle with any Titans players. Burfict then brushed the official’s arm out of his way and was thrown out of the game because of this action.

I never thought I’d defend Burfict, but this is an absurd ejection. Totally ridiculous to kick him out for this. https://t.co/mV2VlANHsU

So ref puts his hands on Burfict, Burfict moves ref’s hand. Burfict gets tossed.
That’s terrible. https://t.co/WSsVHkKRbG

Touchdown celebrations continue to get better each and every week
One of the best parts of the 2017 NFL season has been the reintroduction of fun touchdown celebrations. It has lead to some pretty entertaining sequences and two more were added to the list this week thanks to the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Vikings pulled off a Leapfrog celebration 🐸😂pic.twitter.com/7CPHAEKbvA

I hope I was right in calling the Vikings celebration leap frog. Perhaps in Minnesota it’s known as leap toad or something.

#Vikings need to find a way to simulate 4-Square for a TD celebration, so my childhood self can really come to life.

I love that we live in a world where less than 24 hours after a #Vikings TD celebration happens, there are TWO awesome t-shirts you can buy to commemorate it. Good work, @breakingtco and @SotaStickCo! pic.twitter.com/xUhRFkPPTc

Adrian Clayborn gets six sacks in one game
With Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith unable to play on Sunday due to a groin injury, the team was forced to start backup Chaz Green in his place against the Atlanta Falcons. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, Green’s blocking skills are nowhere close to the level of Smith’s and it resulted in Falcons defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn setting a team-record with six sacks in a single game.

Brock Osweiler cannot even throw the ball away correctly
As his Denver Broncos were trailing the New England Patriots 17-6 in the second quarter of their matchup on Sunday, quarterback Brock Osweiler had to quickly throw the ball away in order to avoid the oncoming Patriots pass-rush. Since this is Osweiler we’re talking about, obviously the pass that was thrown to the sideline hit a random guy in the head and knocked his hat off.
