Two-minute warning: RG3 hit hard and other must-see plays from this weekend’s NFL

If you only have two minutes to catch up on the best plays from the weekend’s NFL, this is the place to be.

Brandon Weeden throws the ball twice in one play, touchdown disallowed

Maybe we should cut the rookie quarterback some slack — after all, the fact that Browns’ QB Brandon Weeden managed to regain control the ball after his original pass was batted down and throw a touchdown at the second attempt is pretty impressive. Unfortunately, it’s also illegal.

Percy Harvin jinks his way to another brilliant touchdown

Not content with his 105-yard kick-off return last week, Harvin had another one for the end-of-season montage when he artfully dodged tackle after tackle to run in this TD for the Vikings against the Titans.

Drew Brees passes Johnny Unitas’ consecutive touchdown record

Take a bow, Drew Brees. This 40-yard pass to Devery Henderson made it 48 consecutive games in which Brees has thrown a touchdown, breaking Johnny Unitas’ long-standing record. To make it even better, Henderson’s number — 19 — was the same number made famous by Unitas.

Kurt Coleman really wanted to slow Antonio Brown down

The Eagles’ Kurt Coleman was so determined to stop Antonio Brown of the Steelers last night that he tore one of Brown’s shoes off. When that didn’t work, he did the old “casual toss to the sideline” trick. Whatever works…

RG3 and the moment Redskins fans have dreaded

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III really likes to run and so it was only a matter of time before he got levelled by a huge hit which would take him out of the game. It happened last night when Sean Weatherspoon’s tackle left him with a concussion and forced him out of the game against the Falcons.

Andrew Luck gets shaken up

It wasn’t the best week for the league’s rookie quarterbacks — how about this huge hit on Andrew Luck of the Colts? Fortunately Luck was able to dust himself off and lead a brilliant final drive to take Indianapolis past the Packers 30-27.
