Sorry JT, But Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. Won the Best Dance Moment of the Super Bowl

While the jury is still out on whether it was the underdog Philadelphia Eagles or Justin Timberlake's amazing dancers who actually won Super Bowl LII, we're pretty confident about who deserves the prize for best dance moment. But surprisingly, it didn't come during the halftime show or in the midst of a touchdown celebration.

Instead, it was during a minute-long commercial for the NFL that featured Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. (quarterback and wide receiver, respectively, for the New York Giants). The duo awkwardly, adorably, recreated one of the most iconic dance sequences ever committed to film: Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's duet from the end of Dirty Dancing.

And yes, they did The Lift. (Not gonna lie, we would love to see a blooper reel of these two working that out.)

Since the NFL relaxed restrictions about touchdown celebrations last season, maybe it'll make an encore appearance during a Giants game next season—we can dream, right?
