One of the most selfless acts ever seen on a gridiron came in Dallas on Sunday, when Philadelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook gave up an easy touchdown in order to take a knee just before the Dallas Cowboys' line.

Per published reports, Westbrook was told by offensive tackle John Runyan not to score.

"He said, 'Listen, if you get down to the one, take a knee,'" Westbrook said. "I was like, 'Ahhh ...' He said, 'Take a knee, Westbrook, take a knee.'"
