Shutdown Corner - NFL

The best play during Week 11 of the NFL season didn't come on Santonio Holmes'(notes) game-winning touchdown catch or the Washington Redskins' game-winning field goal in overtime. It took place during a timeout in the first half of the Tennesee Titans' home game against Washington, when a deployed soldier surprised his family with his return home for Thanksgiving.

The wife and daughter of Sgt. Mark Foster were brought on the field during a first-half timeout to watch a videotaped message Foster had recorded during his deployment in Afghanistan. As far as Jodi and Kayla knew, Mark was still overseas. Turns out, he was just a few feet away:



A wonderful moment on a disappointing football day in Tennessee.

The Fosters had been taking part in the Titans' salute to Veterans Day.
