After Antonio Brown’s front flip into the end zone Sunday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters to judge it during his postgame news conference. Olympic gold medalist Mary Lou Retton isn’t a reporter, but is certainly more qualified to score the end zone somersault.

Retton, the 1984 women’s all-around champion, gave her evaluation of Brown’s tumble at the end of his 56-yard touchdown in Sunday’s 30-9 win over Cleveland.

Brown, who had 10 catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns, concurs with Retton, joking after the game that the Russian judge also probably would’ve awarded him a 10. 

"A little excitement, having fun with it," Brown said via "Gotta be smart. But I definitely stuck the landing."
