The NFL announced earlier this week that teams are no longer allowed to shoot and post video highlights on social media during games, whether it’s in the form of a GIF, standard video or Vine.
This new social media policy hasn’t gone over well with fans, and understandably so. However, teams haven’t been all that happy about it, either, and they made sure to make it known on Sunday. Both the Eagles and Browns used their official Twitter accounts to masterfully troll the league over its new policy.
After Malcolm Jenkins picked off a Kirk Cousins pass and took it to the house for a pick-six, the Eagles posted this GIF of sorts on Twitter. It’s not official game footage, but fans get an idea of what the play looked like.

The Browns then followed suit with this gem.

Excellent work by both parties in mocking the league’s new policy.
