Twitter Marquette King

Technically speaking, the NFL's definition of an excessive celebration is not restricted to touchdown dances. But for the most part, any celebration outside of the end zone is considered premature and foolish.

Enter Marquette King, the Raiders' fifth-year punter. Reserved to bad teams in his first four seasons -- the Raiders won 18 games from 2012-2015 -- King entered Sunday as a relatively unknown. But after a stellar performance with both his leg and his dance moves on Sunday Night Football, King made his presence known.

King, who punted just once in the first half against the Broncos, opened the second half with back-to-back punts to the Denver two-yard line. One came from the Denver 39 and one from the Denver 42.

Both times, NBC cameras caught King's celebratory moves.






Who says punting is not fun? King clearly had a blast celebrating his Sunday performance, playing at the highest level of his position. As long as the NFL does not consider cracking down on excessive punting celebrations, he is in the clear.

King also may be on the way to his first Pro Bowl. His 21 punts this season inside the 20-yard line are second in the NFL and first in the AFC. King also entered Sunday night's game with an average of 49.0 yards per punt, good for fifth in the NFL and second in the AFC.

On top of that, the Raiders are an AFC West-leading 7-2. So get used to seeing King and his moves in primetime.
