It’s nearly impossible to catch all the great moments from every NFL Sunday. We’re here to help. Below we highlight some of the best (and worst) moments from Week 10.
Dancing with the Back-Up
Arizona QB Drew Stanton shows off his Jacksonesque dancing chops on this 48 yard TD run from Andre Ellington. The fluidity of how he moves is… really something. Look at it this way, Drew: if the Cards ever give you a raw deal, you’d make a fantastic 3rd-base coach.
The Chicago Bears appear to be in the midst of turning their unfortunate-to-date season around, winning two big games back-to-back. I mean, just look at the blocking on this screen play to Jeremy Langford, AKA Not-Matt Forte. The Bears themselves can’t even believe their good fortunes!
Some wide receivers have such a chip on their shoulders, you know? Like Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd, who feels the need to make things more challenging by only catching touchdowns in mid-Moonwalk.
Hanging Out with the Team
Q: What do you get when you cross Chip Kelly with Gene Simmons, and an iguana?
A: Minnesota Vikings DT Linval Joseph
Shiver Me Timbers
Week 10 saw the Raiders get the snot beat out of them by the Minnesota Vikings, including this bone-shattering hit on rookie WR Amari Cooper. This is actually the second rocking Cooper’s received in as many weeks. He keeps this up, Cooper will be the youngest player in NFL history to need someone else to feed him.
As Seen on TV
It’s so gratifying to see professional athletes that work hard enjoy their successes on the field. What’s that, you say? The Tennessee Titans are 2-7? Well… it must’ve been difficult to get that dance exactly right. That’s hard work too, right?
Twist and Shout
This is the most brutal facemask I’ve ever seen. I like how the commentators are all tongue-in-cheek about his contact lenses, and less worried about whether he’ll be able to blink ever again. Way to prioritize the joke over possible neurological damage.
Leaping Over Hurdles in Life
St. Louis RB Todd Gurley made Antrell Rolle look baaaaaaad right there. Do you think there’s a support group for football players who look bad missing tackles? Whiffers Anonomous? A Missed-Step Program?
He Calls ‘Em Like He Sees ‘Em
After Willie Young snags his 1st career INT, he gives us all a taste of his famous fisherman’s celebration dance. Afterwards, Jeff Tripplette gives us all a taste of awkward molestation and cringe. Just to ensure you never make it to sleep tonight.
“Dude, it’s the Other Way”
My favorite part of this little mix-up is how S Johnson Bademosi is looking around after being corrected, as though he’s asking his teammates “Hey, do you think the camera caught that?”
