Oakland native and Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was in a celebratory mood during his first game back at home since coming out of retirement. Early in the fourth quarter, with his team up 35-13 on the New York Jets, Lynch started throwing down some animated, jubilant sideline dance moves to the Vell song “Oakland” featuring DJ Mustard. The hometown crowd went nuts, chanting “Beast Mode! Beast Mode!” as Lynch’s hot-dogging appeared on the stadium screen. Many Jets players, however, were not amused by the antics. “It irks my ever-living nerves,” linebacker Jordan Jenkins told ESPN. “When I saw it happening, it was infuriating. …I’m an old-school guy. I don’t like when things like that happen.” The Jets ended up losing the game 45-20. (See the video HERE)

I said I’d rather fess up to my mistakes.” (Read more from PEOPLE)
Say GOODBYE to the sexy beard trend and HELLO to sexy BALD MEN! A new study revealed that bald men may actually be sexier to women.
