VIDEO: Michael Huff Interception In End Zone Saves Raiders Victory

The Oakland Raiders were playing with heavy hearts Sunday afternoon with the death of Al Davis weighing on their minds, but Davis would have liked the way Sunday's game ended. With less than two minutes left in the game, the Raiders were up, 25-20, but the Houston Texans had the ball on their own 37-yard line. Matt Schaub brought the Texans to the Raiders' five-yard line with just seven second left. And then this happened:

Schaub comes under pressure in the pocket and escapes to the sidelines. Schaub sees Jacoby Jones in the end zone and flicks the ball toward him while on the run, but Michael Huff jumps in front for the interception as time expires. The Raiders picked up the 25-20 victory. They won this one for Al.

VIDEO: Drew Brees' Late Touchdown Pass Seals Victory Against Panthers

With seven minutes left in the game, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees directed a 13-play, 89-yard drive to put his team back in the lead over the Carolina Panthers. Brees needed to convert third downs just twice on the drive, but those plays were never in doubt. By the time Brees had the ball at the six-yard line, there was less than a minute left in the game. So, Brees did what he had to: he hit Pierre Thomas with the go-ahead touchdown pass.

Brees dropped back, faked a hand off and then dumped the ball off to Thomas. The running back made it into the end zone with minimal contact for the go-ahead score. The Panthers' Cam Newton was unable to lead a comeback on the final drive of the game.

VIDEO: DeSean Jackson 31-Yard Touchdown Catch

The Philadelphia Eagles have struggled against the Buffalo Bills today, but wide receiver DeSean Jackson used his speed to put his team back in the game early in the fourth quarter. Jackson caught a short pass from quarterback Michael Vick at Buffalo’s 32-yard line. He then turned on the jets and ran it more than 30 yards into the end zone for the Eagles’ third touchdown of the game.

Jackson’s catch cut the Eagles’ deficit to ten points, 21-31 in the fourth quarter. Jackson has three catches for 72 yards so far today. This is just his second receiving touchdown of the season as the Eagles have struggled since their week one win over the St. Louis Rams.

VIDEO: Victor Cruz Tops Dwayne Bowe With Juggling Touchdown Catch

It's a day for ridiculous, juggling touchdown catches, apparently. While Dwayne Bowe's was superb, Victor Cruz may have topped him, going up above two defenders and keeping his wits about him in an insane tip-drill that resulted in a touchdown.

The throw by Eli Manning wasn't great at all -- it was into double coverage, and was more of a chuck it and pray throw -- but no matter: Cruz went up and got it, then outran the Seattle Seahawks defense for the touchdown.

And boy did the Giants need that. At the time, Seattle held a five-point lead, and seemed to be poised to take control of the game early in the fourth quarter. A juggling catch later and New York was back in the lead, with Cruz continuing his impressive streak of play.

VIDEO: Sebastian Janikowski Boots Third Field Goal Of 50+ Yards

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski has done most of the scoring for the Oakland Raiders so far today. Janikowski has booted three field goals of 50 yards or more to help give Oakland a 15-14 lead over the Houston Texans in the fourth quarter.

Janikowski has connected on field goals of 55, 54, and 50 yards to account for nine of Oakland’s points today.

Janikowski is no stranger to long field goals. He hit a career-best 63-yard field goal in week one, to help give Oakland a three point win over the Denver Broncos.

Oakland is seeking its third win of the season in a tight game against the Texans.

VIDEO: Michael Vick Sets NFL Quarterback Career Rushing Record

There's still magic in Michael Vick's legs. The Eagles quarterback passed Randall Cunningham for the most rushing yards by a QB in NFL History on a 53-yard run that gave him 4,496 rush yards in his career.

Vick already owns the record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game and a single season. The 53-yard scampter was the second longest run of his career.

Here's video of the record-breaking run, which set up a Philadelphia touchdown for running back LeSean McCoy:

But It's not all good news Sunday for Vick, who is having a career-bad day throwing the football. He tied a career-high with three interceptions in the first half. Vick has adjusted by turning to his feet.

VIDEO: Dwayne Bowe Juggling Touchdown Catch

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe made a juggling touchdown catch for the highlight reels late in the third quarter to cut the Colts’ lead to 24-21. Watch Bowe’s circus catch here.

That was Bowe’s second touchdown of the day, second highlight reel touchdown catch. Bowe made a 41-yard touchdown catch to put the Kansas City Chiefs on the board in the second quarter, with a long run and nice juke of an Indianapolis defender.

Bowe now has five catches, 119 yards and two touchdowns on the day. This is Bowe’s third 100-yard receiving game of the season, and his second consecutive week to post triple digits in receiving yards.

Bowe has been a catalyst for the Kansas City offense, which was reeling after losing Jamaal Charles for the season. Tensions nearly boiled over recently when head coach Todd Haley and quarterback Matt Cassel exchanged verbal jabs on the sidelines.


VIDEO: Arian Foster Off To The Races

Arian Foster is pretty darn fast. Just check out this 60-yard screen pass that he caught against the Oakland Raiders.

As it turns out, though, the play was all for naught. Neil Rackers eventually missed a 41-yard field goal attempt on the drive.


VIDEO: Dwayne Bowe 41-Yard Touchdown From Matt Cassel

Trailing by a score of 17-0, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel connected with Dwayne Bowe for a 41-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter to cit the Colts’ lead.

Bowe’s touchdown capped off a six-play, 70-yard touchdown scoring drive for the Chiefs. This was Bowe’s third touchdown of the season, and his third consecutive game with a touchdown catch. He and quarterback Matt Cassel both started the season ice cold, but have heated up in recent weeks.He touchdown catch last week came on a 52-yard score and helped give Kansas City it’s first win of the season.

Cassel found another wide receiver, Steve Breaston, later in the second quarter to add another touchdown for Kansas City. Cassel hit Breaston with 16 seconds left on the clock to cut Kansas City’s deficit to ten points. The Indianapolis Colts lead by a score of 24-14 at halftime. A win would give the Colts’ their first of the year.


VIDEO: Hakeem Nicks Burns Seahawks For 41-Yard TD

Remember when we told you that Marcus Trufant’s absence for the Seahawks might mean big things for Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks? Well, Nicks made us look smart, burning second-year cornerback Walter Thurmond, starting this week in place of Trufant, for a 41-yard TD:

Eli Manning has completed 10 of 15 passes at the half, racking up 147 yards and two scores. If he ends up doubling those numbers, that’s a nice day indeed.


VIDEO: Darrius Heyward-Bey 34-Yard Touchdown

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey scored a touchdown with less than a minute in the second quarter to cut the Houston Texans’ lead to 14-12. It was the Oakland receiver’s first touchdown catch of the season.

With the Texans curiously playing a soft zone, with a sizable cushion for the Raiders’ receivers, Heyward-Bey caught Jason Campbell’s pass at the 30-yard line, shook off a defender and ran down the sidelines for the score.

Heyward-Bey was the Raiders’ first-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, a classic Al Davis draft pick known for his blazing speed and little else. Fitting that today, a day after Davis’ death, that Heyward-Bey would score his first touchdown of the season.

That was just the third career touchdown catch for Heyward-Bey, the seventh-overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft and the first wide receiver taken that year.

VIDEO: Joel Dressen's 56-Yard Touchdown Catch

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub found tight end Joel Dressen for a 56-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of their game against the Raiders today. That touchdown made it 14-6 in the Texans’ favor.

Dressen’s touchdown came on the first play after Houston picked off Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell at the Texans’ 44-yard line. Schaub rolled out to his right and found Dressen at the 35-yard line.

Fantasy owners counting on Texans tight end Owen Daniels may have been a little shocked and disappointed. However, Dressen is no stranger to the stat sheet in the Texans passing game. Last year, he scored four time and caught 36 passes for 518 yards.

Dressen has three catches and 69 yards in the game so far. Daniels has four receptions for 67 yards. Houston is looking to build off a big win last week over the defending AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Oakland is coming off a lopsided loss to the New England Patriots.


VIDEO: Cam Newton To Steve Smith Ends In Touchdown, Scuffle

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has settled in vs. the Saints after throwing an interception on the first play of the game. Late in the first half, Newton evaded the rush, stepped up in the pocket and fired a strike to wide receiver Steve Smith, who went 54 yards for a touchdown. Then the *real* fun began.

After Smith crossed the goal line, he was pushed from the side by New Orleans safety Roman Harper.  Harper was flagged for a late hit, but there was also some martial justice issued by the Panthers and a shoving match commenced. Even Newton got in on the action in the end zone. Here's the video via @cjzero:

A great TD catch and some extracurricular activity following the play? What more could you want on NFL Sunday?

VIDEO: Pierre Garcon Catches 67-Yard Touchdown From Curtis Painter

Hopefully, you took our NFL Fantasy sleeper advice and played Curtis Painter against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Indianpolis Colts quarterback just threw his second touchdown of the day, a 67-yard bomb to Pierre Garcon. It was also Garcon's second touchdown of the day.

Garcon and Painter have turned into quite the team, in fact, as they've hooked up for four touchdowns in the past two weeks. Today, Garcon has 119 yards receiving.

Painter, who has been loudly questioned as a NFL quality quarterback, is having an even bigger day. He is 9 of 14 for 186 yards. He now has 467 yards and four touchdowns in the past two weeks.

More importantly, the Colts are out to a 17-0 lead over the Chiefs as they are trying to get their first win of the season. Of course, some will wonder if beating the Chiefs is such a good thing, as the loser will have the inside track on the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.


Vikings Vs. Cardinals: Adrian Peterson Has Two First Quarter Touchdowns

Adrian Peterson wasted little time getting on the board this week. With less than half of the first quarter in the books, Peterson has two rushing touchdowns and 46 yards on five carries.

His first touchdown came with nine minutes left to play in the first quarter. He ran over his left tackle for a four-yard score. Check out the video below.

Peterson’s second touchdown came twenty seconds later. The Vikings picked off a Kevin Kolb pass intended for Andre Roberts and returned it to the Arizona 24-yard line. On the first snap, Peterson ran through the middle for a 24-yard touchdown, giving the Vikings a 14-0 lead.

Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb added another rushing touchdown to give his team a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. Minnesota is still looking for their first win of the season, and hosting a woeful member of the NFC West might be exactly what the doctor ordered.
