Earlier in the NFL season, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller broke out a new sack dance, one inspired by the “Key and Peele” show. But sketch-humor provenance aside, the NFL — you know, the No Fun League — decided that there was a wee bit too much pelvic thrusting involved.

Here is what Miller had taken to doing.

And here is what the NFL did about that a few days ago.

Fast-forward to Sunday, when Miller dropped Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Armed with the knowledge that his future fines would likely increase with each pelvic provocation, the linebacker resorted to mere allusion.

“Them pumps are expensive,” Miller said. “If I keep pumping, it will get out of control.”

For reference (and entertainment), here is the “Key and Peele” sketch that provided Miller with his inspiration.
