17. Celebration Fumble
Marcus Cooper thought he had achieved the spectacular. But instead, all he did was embarrass himself in front of the watching world. The Chicago Bears played the Pittsburgh Steelers early in the 2017/18 season when Cooper found himself with the whole field open in front of him. All he had to do was keep running because there was no way that anybody was going to catch him.
But arrogance cost him because he slowed down to bask in the glory of the moment. He didn’t have enough spatial awareness to realize that he hadn’t made the endzone. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh players closed in on him and made him pay. Vance McDonald forced Cooper to fumble and he duly dropped the ball with a whimper. He was responsible for one of the most embarrassing plays of the season.
