Circus time: Check out the best NFL catches of the day

Shutdown Corner

Some Sundays, you get a full slate of defensive slogs. And some Sundays, you get a cornucopia of acrobatic theatrics. This was one of those latter Sundays. Check out the catches you'll be seeing on highlight shows all week:

First up, you've got Texans tight end Garrett Graham with the tip to himself, part of a 43-13 win over Baltimore:

Next, Greg Little sees Graham's tip and raises him a touchdown, though Little's Browns would come up short to Indianapolis, 17-13:

Then check Jordy Nelson's tap-dancing footwork to score for Green Bay, part of a 30-20 win over St. Louis:

Finally, we go back to Houston, where the defense gets in on the act as Glover Quin intercepts Joe Flacco with grace and style:

Not a bad run there. Perhaps the NFL needs to add a degree-of-difficulty component.
