What a week in the NFL. It seemed as though every game came down to the final seconds, and every game had a number one worthy top play.
From the out-of-no-where highlight reel Victor Cruz to the "who needs two hands" veteran Brandon Lloyd, phenomenal plays just kept coming this week. Weeks like this one are the prime example of why the NFL is the most exciting and most watched sport in America.
So here it is, the top plays of one of the most exciting weeks a fan could hope for.
That was the story of the day for Vick, and the season for the Eagles. Nothing is going right.
The ball gets tipped at the line of scrimmage and an optimistic Reggie Corner is there for the diving interception.
Adrian Peterson has everything you want from a running back; speed, moves and power. And he displays them all on this run.
The best part of the play is after he sealed the touchdown. Instead of just running into to the corner like 94.9% of players would do, he lowered his shoulder and layed a hit.
If anyone can run the option in the NFL it's Cam Newton and DeAngelo Williams.
Williams took the pitch from Newton, saw open field, and turned on the jets. He only had two men to beat, the first he ran by and the second he put on the moves, then topped it off with a stiff arm on his way to the end zone.
I think every NFL team should go after a basketball player to play tight end. It just seems to work.
He's covered well, but manages to tip the ball to himself and make the catch like he's hauling in a rebound.
Cam Newton to Steve Smith has been the best long ball connection this season. Smith has had a reception of 50+ yards in four of the Panthers five games. Sunday's 54 yarder might have been his best yet.
The 32-year-old vet launches himself in the air, stiff arms the corner for good measure, and continues another 30 yards for the touchdown.
The Giants looked like they were about to finish off a game winning drive. Then Eli Manning's pass bounced off Victor Cruz's hands, a Seahawks defender, and ended up in the hands of Brandon Browner who took it back to seal a victory for Seattle.
With the Texans backed up deep in their own territory, Kevin Walter channeled his inner Jim Edmonds, going completely horizontal and making a spectacular diving catch.
Last week the refs bailed out Victor Cruz, this week Cruz bailed out Eli Manning (at least for one play). Eli under-threw a double covered receiver and somehow it ended up being a touchdown pass.
We should just begin to expect these types of plays from Cruz every week. He has turned into one of the most exciting young receivers in the league today.
Now that's a catch.
That took some serious athleticism, coordination and ball skills. He got interfered with, tipped it to himself three times, almost went completely horizontal, and managed to pull it in for the touchdown. Not only was the catch amazing, but it was important to the Chiefs eventual victory.
In the final minute the Broncos were driving down the field for the win, and Lloyd came up big after dropping the two point conversion.
This catch was almost impossible and only a handful of receivers in the game today could have brought it in. It's the play of the week and perhaps the year. Had it been in the end zone, it might have been the play of the decade.
