Some people refer to this play as a "David Reed kickoff return for a touchdown." I prefer to call it "The time three Texans decided it would be more fun to just tackle each other." Take a look at the worst tackling job of the NFL season.

At the time Reed went to the house, it looked like we were in the middle of a Ravens mudstomping. The boys in Battle Red wouldn't back down, though, and ended up pushing the game to an extra quarter. Looking back, every play counted -- few more than the Moe, Larry and Curly job the Texans pulled on this play.

The play also capped an interesting week for Reed. I believe he became the first NFL player ever to have his home raided by police and then return a kick for a touchdown in the same week. While authorities did confiscate some materials from his home, no charges were filed. Slippery guy, David Reed(notes).
