Joique Bell formed a terrific 1-2 punch with Reggie Bush in the Detroit Lions’ Week 1 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Bell set the bar, though, when it came to touchdown celebrations.
After spinning his way into the end zone from 1-yard out (after a TD by Bush on the previous play was overturned), Bell hopped into the Ford Field stands for an old school, “Hip Hop Hooray” celebration with the boisterous crowd. (GIF via @CJZero)
Bell later added a second rushing touchdown, as the Lions hung on for a 34-24 victory.
BEST OF MAXIM
Just like any Lions game you sit and wonder where this team could be at any given Sunday if it wasn’t for idiotic mental mistakes and undisciplined play.
Here we see the Lions finally catch a break (and not beat themselves) when an initial fumble by Joique Bell was overturned when it was determined that the ball broke the plain before it was jarred loose.
Currently the Lions lead...
Lions Joique Bell is a fourth-year running back undrafted Division-II star at Wayne State. He had been cut five different times before landing with the Lions in 2011. Lions tight end Joe Fauria is an undrafted rookie out of UCLA.
You would expect both guys to get a little excited when they punched in touchdowns for the Lions on week one. Bell ran it in from short. Fauria...
The Lions have given us a couple early favorites for Best Touchdown Celebration of Week 1.
Joique Bell climbed into the stands and led the Ford Field Crowd in the old “HEYYYYYYYY-HOOOOOOOO” after scoring in the third quarter.
Then, Joseph Fauria might have topped that with this hilarious dance. Get it, young man…get it.

Tweet We know Reggie Bush is fast, but on artificial turf he’s just ridiculous. I mean, from the Lions’ 30 to 45 yard lines he was a blue & silver blur. No idea what you say as a coach in defensive team meetings after re-watching something like this. Just acknowledge it happened and move […]
This is why the Lions are a much more explosive team if Reggie Bush can stay healthy.
Reggie Bush turned a short pass into a 77-yard touchdown in the third quarter and finished with 191 yards of offense to help the Detroit Lions pull away to beat the Minnesota Vikings 34-24 Sunday.
The Lions overcame a slew of miscues on offense, defense and special teams.
The Vikings also made their share of mistakes, especially Christian Ponder, who threw three interceptions and...
Reggie Bush's first carry went for a nifty 12-yard gain, and the crowd at Ford Field couldn't wait to show its approval:
''Reg-gie! Reg-gie! Reg-gie!''
Bush's debut in Detroit was everything the Lions hoped for when they signed the elusive running back during the offseason. Although Adrian Peterson scored three touchdowns for Minnesota, it was Bush who...

The Detroit Lions pulled off an important Week 1 win over the Minnesota Vikings, 34-24, behind a stellar outing from Reggie Bush and impressive showing by the defense. The Lions’ D bounced back from Adrian Peterson’s 78-yard TD run on the first play from scrimmage to mostly stuff Minnesota in the second half, as Detroit rallied to take a lead.
Here are the key plays from Detroit’s...
The Vikings and Lions combined for strange records and first-time occurrences. Adrian Peterson and Reggie Bush did most of the entertaining and record-breaking.
Adrian Peterson started with a 78-yard touchdown on the Vikings’ first play, then was bottled up. What happened? Frazier had one explanation, but Reggie Bush won the running back battle. Plus, get a dozen-and-a-half notes that help tell the tale of the game.
No fan bases can be feeling worse this morning than those in Austin and L.A., so the DC pharmacy is handing out a double dose of Monday Medicine. Just eight years ago Texas and USC were on top of the college football world, meeting in the 2006 Rose Bowl for the BCS National Championship in one of the most exciting college football games of all time. Now, they're both 1-1. One...
