Stevie Johnson mocks Burress after a touchdown

It is almost three years to the day that Plaxico Burress put a halt to his NFL career by shooting himself in the thigh and Stevie Johnson decided to commemorate the event.

Johnson caught a touchdown late in the second quarter and then proceeded to act out shooting himself in the thigh in the end zone. You can check out a video of the celebration here. He then proceeded to mock Jets receiver Santonio Holmes’ habit of acting like an airplane after a score before throwing himself to the ground as if the plane crashed. That led to a costly flag that left the game tied at 14.

Dave Rayner had to kick off from the 20 after Johnson’s penalty and Rayner compounded the problem by mis-hitting the kick right into the front line of Jets blockers. The Jets recovered and took advantage of the short field to score a touchdown. The touchdown was scored by Burress, ironically enough, but he did not have any special answer to Johnson’s interpretation of what happened on November 29th, 2008.

Johnson’s celebration and penalty overshadowed a good first half for the Bills receiver. Ryan Fitzpatrick targeted him early and often and having Darrelle Revis cover him didn’t do much to slow him down. Johnson had five catches for 44 yards and Fitzpatrick avoided the turnovers that have been a huge problem in recent weeks.

Mark Sanchez hasn’t been so lucky. Sanchez threw a pick for the fifth straight week, setting up Johnson’s score, and has completed just 8-of-20 passes. Two of them have gone for touchdowns, though, which means the Jets don’t have to mount a comeback in the final 30 minutes.

  1. This is a game of mistakes.

    Every pass Sanchez throws looks like an INT, the Bills kicker hits a ball with his ankle and Revis looks like a slice of burned toast.

  2. Yep, he also got a flag for going to the ground, and Burress didn’t. Also, Maybin fore-arms Fitz in the head, yet no flag. I’m not complaining because it happened to the Bills, but if another QB hit like that, that probably would have drawn a flag. Either way, this game isn’t as close as the score indicates. If the ball travels a few inches to the left on the missed kick, then we aren’t talking about a 14-14 score. Revis is overrated, and Sanchez is horrible. Rex, maybe you should check Rayner’s foot, we left our specialist at home.

  3. Good celebration but cost his team points.

    Kicker tried to keep it away from Mcknight because of the penalty and miss kicked it.

  4. Burress should have come back with something making fun of this gem:

    I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER! -Stevie Johnson

  5. yes sanchez has two touchdowns, but they were both wide open easy throws that even i could have made, sanchez is still garbage…and its about time that someone mocked plaxico for being a cheddar bob sideshow, the dude shot himself, that deserves mocking if you ask me

  6. That was the greatest thing I have ever seen!! Was creative, made fun two opposing players, executed nicely….and for that he’ll be fined $20k

  7. I don’t get to see Revis play much, living in an NFC town but from what I’ve seen of him today – he’s getting burned and more than once for some catches by a BILLS receiver.

    All that talk about him being so good that QB’s don’t even throw at him? Seems like the Bills are picking on him specifically…..

  8. I hate to keep posting, but this game is just to important on both sides to not offer my 2 cents. This game will turn on a big run by CJ Spiller. Yes he is averaging about 2 ypc, but if you have been watching, he has had about 2 or 3 runs where an arm around the ankle has kept him out of the secondary. I like his determination, he hasn’t quit. I wasn’t expecting FJ 2.o, but he is being productive and not hurting his team. Blitz pickup has been good too.

  9. Fantastic stuff, very well done.

    Of course Albert and Gannon catch none of that, not even knowing there was a penalty until after the kickoff.

    On the kickoff after, I think it was intentional to try and kick it into that player; the BIlls likely had noticed that this guy had turned away early on previous kickoffs. Given the penalty pushing the kick back, the Jets would’ve been well caught off guard.

    Wait, is this supposed to be a comeback? I’m confused by the fact that it’s nowhere near as funny as that dance was.

  11. Looks like qbs should aim at revis cause he looks awful. Getting totally burned. Like most of the Jets the guy is all talk. Also love to watch Cromartie muff a punt and get burned for a td on the following play. Two big mouth corners, just like their coach

  12. Yeah, throw at Revis! Never mind that he’s again having one of the best seasons an NFL cornerback has ever had. Yes, throw the football at Revis. Jets fans will thank you later.

    LOL at some of the people who post here…brainless

  13. Wow, Revis, and people want to talk garbage on DeAngelo Hall. I watched Revis get torched more in this game alone then all season for Hall.

  14. Jets deserve to win after that stupid Bills celebration that cost their team points.

    Both teams are circling the drain…neither side should be doing any celebrating.

    Well right now the Bills ARE throwing at Revis and getting TDs and first downs. All over the field. Oh and they’re winning the damned game.

    Apparently it’s working…..

  16. RIP Jets fans that saw cromartie fumble the punt return and then get burned by ex-jet brad smith on the very next play

  17. Yeah, throw at Revis! Never mind that he’s again having one of the best seasons an NFL cornerback has ever had. Yes, throw the football at Revis. Jets fans will thank you later.

    Lol. Jets fans have no one to thank, especially the way their guaranteed Super Bowl season is going. I would actually say all NFL will continue to thank your team as long as the they keep playing that awful qb and keep handing the mic to that pathetic coach.

  18. Looks like Stevie Johnson shot himself in the foot with the dropped balls at the end of the game !

  19. Hey teal, wanna revise that statement? Too bad they didn’t target that Revis guy, they would have undoubtedly scoted a touchdown and won. Oh wait, they did, and butterfingers Johnson dropped another big pass. And I thank you, billhartford, for failing to notice the hilariously delicious irony in that statement.

    RIP Buffalo fans, enjoy 3rd!

  20. It was also hilarious when he dropped those two wide open passes at the end. He is unclutch! He’s probably gonna go on Twitter and blame God again.

  21. Pretty funny celebration. Dumb, but funny. But even funnier paddle hands. Did he suddenly get shot in the leg or something? Enjoy the trip back upstate.

  22. And I thank you, billhartford, for failing to notice the hilariously delicious irony in that statement

    Good win dude, sorry you are still 6-5 and trailing the Pats, Ravens, Pitt, Cincy, Raiders…. No irony in that big hole you’re in. BTW, couldn’t care less for the Bills (Pats fan here), I was just enjoying some poor cb and qb play from the Jets.

  23. Arg, with Bill and Hartford in your name I thought for sure you were a Bills fan, I’m 0/2 on guessing allegiances today. Well in that case,
    my new example or irony would be a team being unstoppable in the regular season, and being useless, scared, weak and inept when it counts. Sound familiar? And I wouldn’t be so quick to laugh at bad defense, Mr. Patriots fan, especially when that one specific CB makes your GOAT QB wet his Uggs, and was so good that he forced your entire offense to change it’s philosophy…

  24. To be completely accurate..Johnson’s penalty had NOTHING to do with him holding his leg, mocking Burress. The celebration penalty was incurred when he dove on the ground at the end of his dance.
