NFL in 90: Matt Stafford channels inner Dan Marino, Terrelle Pryor goes all Tecmo Bowl

Was Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys a better one than Dallas-Denver a few weeks ago? That's up for debate, but the Lions' 31-30 victory over the Cowboys certainly had a more memorable ending as Matt Stafford caught everyone off guard with a sneak instead of a spike. The deft deception sent the Lions to a 5-3 record and immediately brought up comparisons to the time in 1994 that Dan Marino faked a spike before throwing a game-winning touchdown against the New York Jets.

Elsewhere, Oakland's Terrelle Pryor sprinted his way into NFL history with a 93-yard touchdown run against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was the longest rushing TD by a quarterback in NFL history and reminded us a lot of the best athlete in history.

We're talking, of course, about the Tecmo Bowl version of Bo Jackson. Watch a sweet side-by-side video of Terrelle and video Bo (plus more!) in this week's edition of NFL in 90 seconds.

BONUS: Here's full video of Dan Marino's "Clock Play" against the Jets.
