25 Awesome NFL Ice Bucket Challenge Videos For ALS Awareness
The Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS--also known as Lou Gehrig's disease--has taken the internet by storm over the last couple of weeks and the amount of donations made in the month of August has been insane.
To help raise awareness for ALS, we put together our 25 favorite videos of NFL stars taking part in the Ice Bucket Challenge--so enjoy!
The Philadelphia Eagles decided to get creative by using construction equipment to dump water on them in a pool, but the highlight of the video was watching Chip Kelly bellyflop into the pool afterwards. Simply awesome.
Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson
Not only did Russell Wilson decide to do the challenge on top of Seattle's Space Needle, but he called out the one and only Mickey Mouse. How cool is that?
Matt Ryan started things off by challenging some of his teammates, but it was cool to see Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff team up with Texans General Manager Rick Smith.
Houston Texans Cheerleaders
The lovely Houston Texans cheerleaders have always had a strong presence on social media--so it wasn't a surprise to see them take part in the challenge. As for their challenge to Pitbull, we're still waiting on your video Mr. Worldwide!
New York Jets
The New York Jets came through with the challenge after being called out by Jimmy Fallon. And to top it off--they received some help from the fire department.
New York Patriots
The look on Robert Kraft's face after the cold water hit his body was priceless, but it was funny to watch the aftermath with the New England Patriots chasing each other with the left over water.
Tom Coughlin, Jerry Reese, and Eli Manning
Eli Manning showed true class by accepting the challenge by one of his biggest fans in 50-year-old Steve Broas--who is battling ALS. Well done, Eli, well done.
Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers
By the look of his facial expression, it looks like Aaron Rodgers didn't realize how cold he would be after doing the challenge--which makes this video even more awesome.
San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick
"I don't get cold."--Colin Kaepernick.
This is what the San Francisco 49ers quarterback said after taking the challenge--and we absolutely love everything about it.
Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders
The Dallas Cowboys have always had a reputation for having some of the best cheerleaders in football and the looks on their faces are hilarious once they get hit with the water.
Indianapolis Colts Quarterbacks
Matt Hasselbeck led the way with the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks taking part in the challenge. Make sure to listen in on the "it's so cold" comment at the end of the video.
Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid
Throughout his career, Andy Reid has always been known for having little facial expression. So when he accepted the challenge and had no reaction to the cold water hitting his body--we weren't really surprised at all!
Numerous players on the Carolina Panthers took part in the challenge, but it's safe to say the best part of this video is the team's mascot taking part in the challenge as well.
Blue From The Indianapolis Colts
Speaking of mascots, how about this awesome video of Blue from the Indianapolis Colts taking part in the challenge at a game? On top of that, he calls out The Ellen Show!
Tennessee Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher
Jeff Fisher accepted the challenge from Pete Carroll and even called out Rascal Flatts--which is awesome. Of course, the best part about Fisher's video is the inappropriate swear word that was bleeped at the end due to how cold the water was.
Cincinnati Bengals Cheerleaders
Give props to the wonderful Ben-Gals for not only calling out their beloved quarterback Andy Dalton, but former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson. Who Dey!
Jacksonville Jaguars Rookies
Led by Blake Bortles, the rookie class of the Jacksonville Jaguars participated in the challenge, but knowing the Florida weather they've been playing in--the water must have felt pretty amazing!
Tim Shaw And The Tennessee Titans
Former NFL linebacker Tim Shaw was recently diagnosed with ALS and even took part in the challenge himself to help raise awareness. Props to the Tennessee Titans for coming through on Shaw's challenge in support of their former teammate as this was one of the more emotional videos to watch.
Detroit Lions Head Coach Jim Caldwell
Jim Caldwell represented the Detroit Lions for the challenge as he let Golden Tate dump the bucket over his head. Now, let's see if his good friend Tony Dungy comes through and accepts the challenge!
Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine accepted the challenge from the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets with open arms--and it was an awesome video as he even called out the Monday Night Football crew.
Baltimore Ravens Wide Receiver Torrey Smith
It was awesome to see Torrey Smith let some of those who serve our country help him participate in the video and of course--we love the comment at the end where he can't wait to jump into a hot tub!
Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll
Pete Carroll has always been one of the most entertaining coaches in football--so nobody should be surprised to see him accept the challenge while standing at the podium. Way to go Pete!
St. Louis Rams
Hands down--Kenny Britt has the best reaction in this video. In fact, Britt's reaction is so funny, there's a good chance you'll watch this video at least three or four more times.
New York Giants
The New York Giants had two members of their organization take part in the challenge along with three of their players (Mark Herzlich, Andre Williams, and Mathias Kiwanuka). Like they said in the video, be sure to donate!
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
You have to admit--the video of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell dumping that heavy water on his head is pretty awesome to watch. Nicely done Commissioner!
