Top 5 Must-see plays from Week 15

Shutdown Corner

1. Angry-man run
It hasn’t been the season that Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson expected, but he hasn’t lost any of his anger or steam in his running. Check out this bullish touchdown plunge in which he trucks Washington Redskins corner Josh Wilson.

2. Who dat?
Which is harder: Correctly pronouncing Michael Hoomanawanui’s name or the catch that the Hoo-Man made? This one-handed beauty by the New England Patriots tight end had them briefly saying “Gronk who?” but the Pats lost at the buzzer to the Miami Dolphins.

3. Just another freakish play
And now for the weekly Alshon Jeffery portion of the program … The Chicago Bears’ second-year wideout has been on a ridiculous-highlight-a-week pace, and he keeps it up here with this terrific touchdown on an underthrown Jay Cutler pass against the Cleveland Browns.

4. So … what happened exactly?
This one was just weird. The San Francisco 49ers were driving toward midfield against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when it appeared quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a free play because of a defensive offsides. He dropped back to pass and found Vernon Davis along the sideline, but Davis couldn’t catch it and Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David picked it off. And that’s when … strangeness ensued. See for yourself.

5. Final Dez-tination
The Dallas Cowboys might have blown a 26-3 halftime lead in a loss to the Green Bay Packers, but don’t blame Dez Bryant. His incredible, over-the-shoulder touchdown against Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings was a sleight of hand that you’ve got to check out.
