The NFL will fine Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters $13,000 for a lewd touchdown celebration during a Week 1 win over the Oakland Raiders, according to Yahoo Sports.
With the Rams up 26-13, Peters picked off Derek Carr’s late fourth-quarter pass at midfield and returned it for a score — turning and grabbing his crotch as he leaped backward into the end zone.
The gesture was reminiscent of Marshawn Lynch’s infamous Beast Quake run against the New Orleans Saints in 2011 as a member of the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch now plays for the Raiders.
It was the first pick-six for Peters, 25, since his rookie year with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2015, when he had eight interceptions and returned two for scores.
For his career, Peters has 56 passes defensed, 20 interceptions and 154 tackles.
Peters and Lynch both grew up in Oakland and share an agent.
