Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Denico Autry was called for a 15-yard taunting penalty on Saturday for his celebratory dance after sacking Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Autry’s dance, which occurred directly in front of the referee, was deemed “suggestive” and thus worthy of a 15-yard penalty.
The scene was eerily reminiscent of a popular “Key & Peele” sketch.
The Indianapolis Colts lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 31-13 on Saturday in a game that had few bright spots for the Colts.
The Colts had won 10 of their last 11 games heading into Kansas City, but couldn’t get anything going on Saturday, failing to score an offensive touchdown until the final five minutes of the game and going a dismal 0-9 on third down conversions.
Indianapolis’ entire performance was a comedy of errors, and the funniest play of the game came courtesy of defensive tackle Denico Autry, who got a little too excited when celebrating his sack of Patrick Mahomes.
Autry made a big stop for the Colts, sacking Patrick Mahomes on fourth down, but unfortunately decided to take part in a suggestive celebratory dance right in front of the official after the play.
Was Denico Autry taunting the ref? Got a 15-yard penalty for this….
