Shutdown Corner

Chris Johnson terrific TD reception
The Tennessee Titans fell behind early after a terrible first half, and they ended up blowing a late lead to the Kansas City Chiefs. But in between was some magic, including this touchdown reception from backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to Chris Johnson.

Romo artful scramble and throw to Witten
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was mostly brilliant in defeat, and he makes the list twice. Watch him escape pressure, dance around and, to top it off, throw to tight end Jason Witten, who makes a terrific diving catch early on against the Denver Broncos.

Romo hits Terrance Williams for 82
Peyton Manning had begun asserting his will on the Cowboys, taking a 15-point lead in the third quarter. But Romo wasn't done. He found Terrance Williams, replacing an injured Miles Austin, for an 82-yard score that kept the Cowboys in the game.

Colts blocked field goal for TD
Indianapolis Colts defensive end Lawrence Guy blocks the field-goal attempt, and safety Delano Howell picks up the loose ball returning it all the way for six in what was one of the more impressive matchups of Week 5.

Daryl Washington baits Cam Newton into INT
Welcome back, Daryl. After serving a four-game suspension, Washington returned without a lot of practice time but looked like he had no rust to knock off. Newton drove the Panthers down the field and wanted Steve Smith on the slant route, but Washington stepped in front, picked it off and effectively staved off the Panthers' comeback.
