This season has seen plenty of exciting plays. However we've narrowed them to the 10 best and then asked you, the fans, to vote. Here are the results.
Brad Smith: Kickoff return vs. Bengals
The Jets kick return specialist made an explosive play on Thanksgiving, breaking the game against Cincinnati wide open. Smith’s 89-yard kickoff return was dazzling, but what was even more impressive was he lost his shoe during the run to the end zone.
LeGarrette Blount: Spinning air touchdown
The undrafted rookie went airborne in Week 10 for a 17-yard touchdown run against the Panthers. Blount vaulted over Panthers safety Charles Godfrey. Blount left his feet at the 4-yard line while barrel-rolling, stretching his body and extending the football across the goal line for a touchdown.
Peyton Hillis: Touchdown run vs. Panthers
The Browns’ running back absolutely trampled Panthers safety Charles Godfrey in Week 12 for a 5-yard touchdown run. The 240-pound running back used every ounce of force he had, putting his head down and leveling the competition.
Kroy Biermann: Interception of Jake Delhomme
In the fourth quarter against the Browns, the Falcons defensive lineman swatted quarterback Jake Delhomme’s pass. While the ball fluttered in mid-air, Biermann intercepted the pass just before the ball hit the ground. Biermann returned the interception 41 yards to seal the 20-10 victory in Week 5.
Tony Moeaki: One-handed touchdown reception
The Chiefs rookie tight end made a phenomenal one-handed touchdown catch against the 49ers in Week 3. Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel sent the ball over the middle, placing it over Moeaki’s head. Moeaki reached up and pulled the ball down solely with his right hand for an incredible touchdown catch.
Mike Thomas' miracle grab
In Week 10, the Jaguars were locked at 24 with the Texans with three seconds remaining. Some coaches would call for a knee and play for overtime, but head coach Jack Del Rio did just the opposite. David Garrard threw a 50-yard Hail Mary pass into the end zone, which was batted down. But the ball fell into the hands of Mike Thomas for the amazing and memorable Jacksonville victory.
Randy Moss: One-handed touchdown grab vs. Jets
In the second week of the NFL season, Moss made a spectacular one-handed touchdown grab, by way of Tom Brady. The former Patriots receiver was single-covered by Jets shutdown cornerback Darrelle Revis and Moss ran a tight route, beating him to get open. Moss got the last laugh as Revis referred to Moss as a “slouch” in the week leading up to the game. Revis, however, tweaked his hamstring on the play and was sidelined two weeks.
Donald Driver: 61-yard touchdown reception
In Week 13 against the 49ers, Packers wide receiver Donald Driver ignited Lambeau Field with his 61-yard, catch-and-run touchdown. Aaron Rodgers threw a strike to Driver, but it was his run after the catch effort that made this play a highlight. Driver fought off two defenders, then stopped his stride to push 49ers cornerback Nate Clements aside. Driver then dove for the pylon to put Green Bay on the board.
Dan Connolly: Unlikely kickoff return
In Week 15’s game between Green Bay and New England, the 6-foot-4, 313-pound Patriots offensive lineman fielded a bouncing Mason Crosby kickoff at the 25 yard line. Connolly saw a lane up the middle, and the race was on. The Patriots’ right guard returned the kick 71 yards, just shy of the goal line.
DeSean Jackson: Game-winning punt return
Tied at 31 with 12 seconds remaining in regulation in Week 15, Giants rookie punter Matt Dodge booted a short punt to Jackson. The electrifying return man fumbled the ball at first, but found an open alley to race towards midfield. Jason Avant provided a seal block to spring Jackson free and the eye-popping return was on. The game-winning punt return was the first ever in NFL history.
