Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster made the most of his lone trip to the end zone in Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Smith-Schuster’s 31-yard touchdown reception cut Dallas’ lead to 19-15 early in the fourth quarter. Pittsburgh would go on to win 24-19 and move to 8-0 overall.
Immediately after scoring, Smith-Schuster appeared to do his best Terrell Owens impression, mimicking the Hall of Famer’s infamous arms wide open celebration in Dallas.
The only difference was JuJu couldn’t get to the star logo at midfield, as Cowboys defensive linemen Randy Gregory and Antwuan Woods stepped in to stop him.
JuJu thought he wanted the celebration smoke, but changed up ASAP when he saw big @AntwaunWoods_ daring him.

After the win, Smith-Schuster admitted that he was trying to duplicate what Owens did and wouldn’t rule out trying again in the future, depending on the time and score.
“That first celebration, I was going to do the T.O. star celebration. 94 like, raked the ball out of my hands, probably would’ve stopped me and James Conner came over and pulled me over, like, ‘It’s a close game,’ Smith-Schuster said postgame, via Steelers Depot. “You just never know what’ll happen, and I didn’t want to start anything. But if it was a far, far blowout game, I definitely would love to do that one day.”
Based off the NFL’s scheduling, the Steelers won’t be visiting the Cowboys again until 2028, so we doubt JuJu gets another opportunity to make a run for the star.
As it is, he’s probably lucky his first attempted trip ended without more punishment.
