NFL Week 1 top viral moments: Bryce Young’s first touchdown ball gets tossed into crowd

The NFL is finally back, and with it, fans are taking to social media to react to their favorite fun moments from around the league.

Here is what had NFL fans buzzing online during the first full game slate of the season!

San Francisco 49ers at Pittsburgh Steelers 

Not a great start for Pittsburgh

San Francisco scored 20 straight points in the first half to start a season in which many believed the Steelers could contend in a loaded AFC, while the Steelers offense seemed somehow worse than its struggles last season. Social media reacted accordingly.

The dab refuses to die

Pat Freiermuth got the Steelers on the board with a touchdown catch just before halftime… and celebrated with a dab?!?

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons 


It took just over one quarter for Panthers rookie Bryce Young, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft, to throw his first touchdown as a pro. But things quickly took a turn for the worse when veteran tight end Hayden Hurst, who caught the pass, tossed the ball into the crowd.

Freddie Falcon is flying!

Talk about a halftime show, as the Falcons mascot literally swooped in from the stadium rafters like an actual falcon.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts 

Big day for A-Rich!

Young’s fellow rookie Anthony Richardson used his legs for his first NFL score, and his family was there to witness it in person.

Arizona Cardinals at Washington Commanders

From his seat!

This Week 1 moment may have already given us our best referee flag toss of the season.

Not much Command being taken

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings

Is Justin Jefferson a two-way player?

Perhaps drawing some inspiration from Colorado’s Travis Hunter, the star Vikings receiver had seven catches for 138 yards in the first half — and one hard tackle.
