NFL's Most Exciting Plays Thus Far in the 2011 Season

Bret Celek's Amazing Catch

There have been quite a few exciting plays in the NFL so far this year, so narrowing down the list is difficult. But this list has a little bit of something for everyone. It includes a lineman rumbling for a touchdown, some kick returns, a blocked punt and some long bombs.

I am biased towards those tide-turning special teams plays that can quickly and unexpectedly change the flow and outcome of a game. So maybe I went a little heavy on such plays here.

My favorite play can't be on the list because it was wiped out by a penalty. That was the play where the Chicago Bears' Devin Hester faked a fair catch of a punt in the game against the Green Bay Packers. The punt was actually received on the opposite side of the field by Johnny Knox, who ran it back for a touchdown. But a holding penalty eliminated this super play.

If I missed any plays that you would include on the list, please leave a comment and let me know. If you have a source for a video of the play, that would be even better. Thanks.
