After catching a redzone touchdown during the second quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday, Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson mocked being shot in the thigh.
Johnson's particular choice of dance moves are not common, and in fact cut deeper than a receiver simply celebrating following a score. The dance was observed by Jets receiver Plaxico Burress from the sideline. Burress served 20 months in prison for shooting himself in the leg in a nightclub in 2008 while he was with the Giants. The ordeal put Burress's career and life in jeopardy.
Johnson caught the 5-yard pass, got up and, in his short celebration, acted as if he shot himself. He then ran to the left side of the end zone mocking the "flight" celebration the Jets often use after scoring.

It was only when Johnson fell to the ground at the end of that second demonstration that he was penalized 15 yards for excessive celebration.
Burress would have the last laugh though, as Johnson dropped two key throws from Bills Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during the last drive of the game where the Bills failed to answer a late Jets touchdown that put New York on course to beat Buffalo 28-24.
