Some collected winnings, others drowned sorrows and there were those who watched back the Jennifer Lopez and Shakira half-time performance.
But Kansas City Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi had other ways of marking his team's victory at the Super Bowl - following their win against the San Francisco 49ers.
He paid all the adoption fees at a Kansas City dog shelter - after he made snow angels in confetti on the pitch.
The fee is normally around $150 (£115).
The KC Pet Project posted on Facebook that the player - who plays defence - has stumped up the costs for every single adoptable dog at all of their locations.
It means families will be able to take dogs home for free.
Since Nnadi's donation a spokesman said around 20 dogs had been adopted - double what is usually expected in a working day.
"All my life, I always wanted a dog," Nnadi told CNN, explaining he got one when he was in his final year at college.
"When I first got him, he was very timid. It made me think of how other animals, whether they're owned or in a shelter, are feeling scared and alone."
