Chargers’ “Reverse Music City Miracle”

The San Diego Chargers had just been shell-shocked by the Tennessee Titans, who had scored a touchdown to take the lead on Sunday with 15 seconds remaining. That left the Chargers hoping to pull out a miracle in the final seconds with little chance to win, and apparently Philip Rivers would do anything — including using his feet — to try to keep the ball alive, soccer-style. (Hint: It was not successful, but it was entertaining.)

Dez Bryant steamrolls Cortland Finnegan on 2-yard touchdown catch

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is a bad dude with the ball in his hands. Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan is one of the feistiest players in the league. So we could expect nothing less than fireworks when these two met up for a jump ball in the Cowboys' victory. Round One went to Bryant on the touchdown. It’s rare you see a player, much less a $10 million corner, get dominated this badly, even against a player as good as Bryant.

Browns fake field goal

Without Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden, the Cleveland Browns had to pull out all the stops in an upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Check out this fake — and how wide open tight end Jordan Cameron is on the play.

Insane fumble return on 4th and 1 in Packers-Bengals

In a truly bizarre and entertaining game, this was perhaps the craziest play of them all: Johnathan Franklin, stuffed on the run, fumbles and it’s returned all the way for the game-winning score by Terence Newman.

Tandon Doss’ 82-yard punt return

Count the number of Houston Texans who have a shot at Doss — it’s at least six — who returns the punt down the right sideline and shows off his nifty balance en route to a back-breaking score in the Baltimore Ravens’ stunning win.
