If you haven’t been watching the AFC West-leading Oakland Raiders, you’ve been missing MVP candidate quarterback Derek Carr, pass-rusher extraordinaire Khalil Mack and - perhaps best of all - punter Marquette King’s celebrations.

After each of a pair of third-quarter punts that were downed close to the goal line during a statement-making 30-20 victory over the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos, King launched into a series of moves most often seen when wide receivers score touchdowns.

"Just having a little fun," King told the Associated Press.

So are the fans - who no longer mind the decision to punt.
