Bush and Bush score simultaneous touchdowns
Ray Rice's amazing fourth-and-29 conversion
This might be the play of the year, especially if it helps take the Baltimore Ravens to an extra home playoff game or two. On fourth-and-29, and on a drive Baltimore needed to sustain to force a tie with the San Diego Chargers late in the game, Rice took a 1-yard swing pass (seriously -- who calls that?) and bulled for 29 more yards on his own to get the cherished first down. "Hey diddle diddle -- Ray Rice up the middle," the man said after the game. A Marx Brothers reference? That's an MVP move, sir.
Golden Tate sells out for a big catch
The Seahawks lost a game they really couldn't afford to Sunday, but it wasn't Golden Tate's fault -- the third-year receiver made a serious play with this stretched-out reception against the Dolphins.
Leon Washington gets a historic return touchdown
Seattle's loss wasn't Leon Washington's fault, either. With 7:54 left in the game, Washington took a kick back 98 yards for a touchdown, tying him with Cleveland's Josh Cribbs for the most kick return scores in an NFL career with eight.
T.Y. Hilton speeds past everybody on a punt return touchdown
Speaking of special teams, this just in: This T.Y. Hilton kid? He's pretty fast. The Colts' rookie receiver made everyone else look as if they were in slow motion on this 75-yard punt return. Hilton also caught a touchdown pass in the game, proving to be the difference-maker in Indy's 20-13 win over the Buffalo Bills.
Janoris Jenkins goes wild with two pick-sixes
Admittedly, it's not hard to pick off whoever's playing quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals these days. On Sunday, it was Ryan Lindley's turn in the barrel, and the sixth-round rookie threw four total interceptions, including two pick-sixes to fellow rookie Janoris Jenkins of the St. Louis Rams.
Chris Givens makes another great play
Lost in the "Sam Bradford has no targets" narrative (a generally accurate narrative, to be sure) is the fact that Givens has become one of the big-play threats in the NFL. The rookie from Wake Forest already has five plays of 50 or more yards this season, and none of them were as impressive as this 37-yard touchdown against the Cardinals. Givens, who caught five passes for 115 yards on Sunday, is a playmaker to watch.
Bengals receivers make big plays
Andy Dalton got a lot of help from his friends in the Cincinnati Bengals' 34-10 rout of the Oakland Raiders. First, there was this catch by Mohamed Sanu, who brought in two scores on the day...
...and there was this -- yet another example of why A.J. Green is A.J. Green.
