ANIMATED: Matt Forte's Juke Move Wins The Day

As two defenders converged on Matt Forte, he had a decision to make. He could be the middle of a Forte sandwich, which sounds like a painful venture, or he could find a quick escape route. Finding an escape route was no easy task, though, and would take a vicious juke move to pull off.

And then he did this.



With one jump cut, Forte left both his adversaries momentarily grasping at air before they collided with each other. Notice help coming from the right side of the screen, as well. While the animation doesn't show it, I'm pretty sure No. 20 got blown up for good measure.

Simple, powerful and absolutely filthy: Forte pulled off one of the better juke moves you'll see.

Colts Vs. Saints Score: New Orleans Takes Early Lead After Curtis Painter Takes Ball Off Face

The New Orleans Saints got off to a good start on NBC's Sunday Night Football, though it wasn't exactly all of their doing. The Colts actually took control of the ball first, but a quick snap caught Curtis Painter off guard, leading to a fumble and a quick score the other way when Drew Brees connected with Marques Colston in the end zone.

The Colts looked to be moving the ball like a competent offense, even running the no-huddle well under Curtis Painter -- the team's third-string quarterback behind injured veterans Peyton Manning and Kerry Collins -- but then he took a snap off of the chinstrap (as the video below shows).

Following that mishap, Drew Brees needed to take his team just 41 yards down the field to give his team the first score of the game. After runs from all three running backs -- Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles -- Brees found wide receiver Marques Colston in the end zone with a 14-yard toss.

Carson Palmer Replaces Kyle Boller, Throws Pick-Six

It's been a downright terrible day for the Oakland Raiders quarterbacks. In fact, it might be a good idea to just use running backs out of the wildcat and cut out the middle man. You see, Kyle Boller started the game and it was about as predictable as could be. Boller came out and immediately threw an pick-six.

But Boller wasn't done -- not by a longshot. In addition to the early interception that was returned for a touchdown, Boller added two more picks as the Raiders offense struggled to get anything going. It was only a matter of time before the Kyle Boller era ended.

In the second half, Boller's day came to a merciful end as Carson Palmer made his debut. Except things haven't gone so hot for Palmer, either. For example, Palmer joined the pick-six parade!

So there's that. Boller was 7-15 for 61 yards and Palmer is 7-14 for 83 yards so far, with the former throwing three interceptions and the latter one. Either way, the quarterback play hasn't been great and with Darren McFadden dealing with some kind of foot injury, the Raiders' offense is struggling.

UPDATE: As this was published, Palmer threw a second interception. If you're wondering what's on the line in this game, Jason LaCanfora lets you know:

Palmer promptly pulls a Boller and throws a pick six. Raiders AFC West win streak, dating back to Nov 2009, is dying


VIDEO: Chiefs CB Javier Arenas Wildcat Touchdown

The Kansas City Chiefs broke out the wildcat against the Oakland Raiders today. With running back Jamaal Charles out for the season, Todd Haley turned to another of his speedy players, albeit an unconventional one. Cornerback Javier Arenas came into the game in the third quarter for the play. Here is video of the touchdown, featuring the replay as well.

Arenas took the snap, faked the handoff and ran it in for a seven-yard touchdown. That touchdown put the Chiefs up by a score of 21-0.

Jackie Battle was supposed to be the Chiefs main running back today. Instead, Arenas and LeRon McLain have the Chiefs' two rushing  touchdowns. Battle has ten carries for 44 yards today. 

It’s been a big day for the Chiefs’ defensive backs. A first quarter interception of Oakland QB Kyle Boller gave the Chiefs a 7-0 lead, and they haven’t looked back since.

Carson Palmer came into the game after Kyle Boller threw three interceptions, putting the Raiders in a hole that will be tough to dig their way out of with the game in the second half.


VIDEO: Brian Robison Kicks T.J. Lang In The Groin

The Green Bay Packers were trailing the Minnesota Vikings 14-7, driving down the football field. The Packers drive wound up stalling out and the Packers had to kick a field goal. It was good, cutting the Vikings lead to 14-10, but after the field goal there was some extra curricular activity.

Vikings defensive end Brian Robison kicked Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang square in the groin. It was like a mixed martial arts up kick, but this is football not the UFC. Robison was flagged for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and no doubt will be fined by the league later this week. To Lang's credit, he fought the urge to retaliate and draw an off setting penalty for the Packers.

VIDEO: Kyle Boller Starts Over Carson Palmer, First Throw A Pick 6

After a week of cat and mouse where Oakland Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson refused to name a starting quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs in week 7, Kyle Boller got the go-ahead start with Palmer still not game ready. Boller's first throw ended up being intercepted and returned for 59 yards for a touchdown by Kansas City.



VIDEO: Tim Tebow Touchdown, Two-Point Conversion Sends Game To Overtime

Though it looked like he might, Tim Tebow did not disappoint the Florida fans who turned out to see him play against the Dolphins in South Florida today. Trailing by a score of 15-0, Tebow put the Broncos on the board with a touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas in the fourth quarter. One recovered onside kick later, Tim Tebow and the Broncos tied the game and sent it to overtime.

With less than a minute left on the clock, Tebow hit tight end Daniels Fells on a short pass to his right, which Fells ran in for the touchdown. That made the score 15-13, and Denver went for the two-point conversion.

For some odd reason, the Dolphins defense seemed to have no idea that Tebow might run the ball on the two-point conversion play. He did, and the Broncos tied the Dolphins to send the game to overtime.

Denver missed two field goals earlier in the game.

Here’s video of Tebow’s second touchdown and the two-point conversion.


VIDEO: Tim Tebow Puts Denver On The Board With Touchdown Pass

After disappointing for most of the afternoon, Tim Tebow picked things up in the fourth quarter against the Miami Dolphins. Tebow connected on a five-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas, cutting the Dolphins lead to 15-7 with just over three minutes to play in the game. Here is the video of Tebow’s touchdown pass.

That touchdown came after Tebow hit Broncos wide receiver Matt Willis for a 42-yard pass to put Denver inside the red zone, trips inside the 20-yard line being something of a rarity in this game.

Tebow is eight for 19 with 111 passing yards and a touchdown in this game. He has 61 yards rushing on seven carries so far.

This is Tebow’s second passing touchdown of the season. Prior to this game, Tebow was four for ten with 79 yards and a touchdown, in very limited work this year. He replaced Kyle Orton in Denver’s week 5 game against San Diego.

Calvin Johnson scored a 57-yard touchdown to start a Lions comeback against the Falcons.


VIDEO: Cam Newton Ties Vince Young For Most Rushing TDs By Rookie QB

Cam Newton continues to make plays with his feet. This Cam Newton video made the highlight-reel in the first half when the Panthers quarterback ran all over and around hapless Redskins defenders.

On the Panthers first drive of the second half, Cam Newton scored a rushing touchdown, his seventh of the season. That number ties Newton with Vince Young for most rushing touchdowns by a rookie quarterback. It was his his fifth rushing in the last five games.

This run isn't as flashy, but it was worth six points. Watch Newton high-step his way into the end zone in the video below:

Newton is having a strong fantasy football day, so far. He has thrown for 141 passing yards and rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown midway through the third quarter.

VIDEO: Tim Tebow Doing What He Does He Best

Things are turning downright ugly in South Florida. The Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins are locked in a battle of the barely competent, with Miami maintaining a slight lead on the scoreboard. Tim Tebow did offer a little something for the highlights today, breaking off a 21-yard run, breaking a few tackles in the process.

Here’s the video of Tebow’s scramble.

Unfortunately for Tebow, he fumbled the ball three plays later. It was recovered by the Broncos, who promptly punted it away with the clock ticking on the first half.

Through two quarters, Tebow has 38 rushing yards on six carries. In the passing game, the Broncos quarterback is just three for five with 24 yards.

Miami leads the Broncos by a score of 6-0 at halftime. Tebow and the 2008 Florida national championship team was honored at the game today, in front of a winless Dolphins and very few fans in the stadium.


VIDEO: Miami Converts Willis McGahee Fumble Into Three Points, Barely

Miami converted a Willis McGahee fumble into a field goal, giving them a 6-0 lead over the Denver Broncos.


VIDEO: Roy Williams Scores Against Bucs

Remember when Roy Williams was supposed to be the next big, dominant wide receiver? Well, that hasn't exactly happened, but on occasion he reminds everyone why so many thought he'd be good. On Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he did it again, bouncing off a couple tacklers and scoring his first touchdown of the season.

Williams also made a nice adjustment on the throw from Jay Cutler, turning around and keeping his balance. Now, if he could just do that on a regular basis...

VIDEO: Antonio Gates Scores TD In First Game Back

Injuries have kept San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates from turning in his regular level of productivity. On Sunday, he finally scored his first touchdown of the season. Gates caught a 2-yard pass from Phillip Rivers in the back of the end zone to give the Chargers a 14-3 lead over the New York Jets.

The Chargers will certainly be hoping this is a sign of things to come. Gates had not played in any of the past four games and had not made a catch since Week 1. So far in this game, he has three catches for 24 yards.

VIDEO: Cam Newton Running All Over Redskins

Cam Newton is just a rookie, but he's already one of the most electric players in the NFL. On Sunday vs. the Redskins, the Panthers quarterback flashed brilliance in the first quarter and could be on his way to a nice day for fantasy football stats.

In the video below, Newton picks up 25 yards on a ridiculous scramble -- dodging a sack, traversing the field, and shrugging off would-be tacklers in one absurd highlight. Words can't do it justice so watch for yourself.

The run set up a scoring drive that resulted for a field goal, and an early 3-0 lead for the Panthers. Carolina (1-5) is searching for a win against the Redskins.

Newton is averaging 307 passing yards and 34.5 rushing yards per game. His six rushing touchdowns are already just one behind Vince Young for most running TDs by a rookie quarterback in a season. This week, Newton is actually the more seasoned quarterback on the field. The Redskins are breaking in John Beck at quarterback, his first start this season.

VIDEO: Chargers Linebacker Donald Butler Returns Interception For TD Against Jets

Donald Butler just stole Dustin Keller's lunch. The San Diego Chargers linebacker ripped the ball out of Keller's hands for an interception and the returned in 37 yards for a go-head touchdown. The score gave the Chargers a 7-0 lead over the New York Jets.


VIDEO: Matt Forte Scores On 32-Yard Touchdown Run

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte got the Bears off to an early lead over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Lodon with a 32-yard touchdown run. The Bears scoring drive consisted of just three Forte runs, but they totaled in 58 yards on the ground. Earlier in the drive the Bears running back ripped off a 22-yard run, then capped it off with this 32-yard score.

The Bears hold the early lead over the Bucs in London, 7-0.
