EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson drew plenty of attention to himself Sunday, but ultimately, for the wrong reasons.
Johnson mocked New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress with a touchdown celebration during the second quarter of the Jets' 28-24 victory. After catching a five-yard touchdown pass, Johnson started dancing, and then grabbed his leg and fell to the ground. It was a reference to Burress accidentally shooting himself in the leg in 2008, leading to an illegal weapons charge that landed Burress in prison.
After the game, Johnson expressed regret for the stunt. Not because it might have offended people, but because he was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that gave the Jets better field position for a game-tying touchdown drive.
"It hurt our team," Johnson said. "It was very stupid of me. It was a bad decision."
Burress played it cool when asked about Johnson's celebration.
"I don't have any reaction to it," Burress said. "It doesn't really bother me at all."

Asked if he had something personal against Burress, Johnson said, "No, not at all. Just having fun, that's it."
However, Johnson was not done making mistakes. On the Bills' final drive, he dropped a pass wide open, deep in Jets territory. If Johnson had caught the ball, the Bills might have pulled out the victory. Instead, the Bills' final drive stalled at the Jets' 24-yard line as time ran out.
"I didn't react fast enough," Johnson said of his key drop. "I think it could have been a touchdown. It's tough."
On the day, Johnson had eight catches for 75 yards and one touchdown.
Johnson's celebration became an instant YouTube hit. But it might cost him a fine.
"If I do (get fined) I do, if I don't, I don't," Johnson said. "That doesn't matter to me. I'm trying to win a game, and it didn't happen today. That's what I'm worried about. I'm not worried about a fine.''
However, the next time Johnson scores, he might want to think harder about how he celebrates
