Vick Ballard is Neo

The Indianapolis Colts improved to 4-3 on Sunday after running back Vick Ballard scored an amazing overtime touchdown to clinch a 19-13 win. The Colts ran a throwback screen, with quarterback Andrew Luck running to his right, planting, and throwing back across the field to Ballard. The rookie from Mississippi State took it down the left sideline, but it appeared he'd be stopped short of the goal line, inside the five-yard line. But he went up and over the top, spinning in mid-air and coming down inside the pylon for the incredible touchdown. An animated gif of the play:

Ballard_medium

The score abruptly ended the game under the new sudden-death overtime rules. Had the Titans held the Colts to three, they would have received a shot to answer on offense. But Ballard's score ended it early, providing Andrew Luck his first career win on the road. The victory also snapped a 10-game Indianapolis road losing streak.

Vernon adds to Gangnam Style NFL celebrations

It's a party in New Jersey for the Dolphins so far, as Miami has jumped all over their divisional rival in the first quarter. There was plenty of talk about shark-jumping due to the propensity of NFL players defaulting to Gangnam Style celebrations in Week 7. But Miami rookie Olivier Vernon doesn't care if you think it's played, he's going to add to the compendium of NFL players mimicking Psy:

Gangnam

Not bad form for the former Hurricane. It was the rookie's first touchdown, taking a blocked punt back for an early double-digit Dolphin lead, and he just wanted to dance. He can claim he's first in the books for Week 8, but now we'll wait and see if RedZone once again just becomes one big loop of homages to the Korean rapper.

Thanks to Vernon and his dance moves, the Dolphins are up big on the Jets, leading 17-0 early in the second quarter.

Cromartie, Bush introduce themselves early in NY

The New York Jets defense engaged in some back-and-forth trash talking in the media this week with Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, and that angst quickly carried over to the field. Miami fed Bush on their opening drive, and he responded with a quick 25 yards on four carries. Bush broke off a long 19-yard run on Miami's opening possession, moving the Fins across midfield into New York territory. Bush cut to his left and as he was heading to the sideline, he threw a nice stiff arm to the head of Antonio Cromartie.

The Jets cornerback got Bush to the ground, but both immediately went face-to-face as soon as they got up.

Cromartie was whistled for a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty on the play, moving the Dolphins further into New York territory. Miami came away with a field goal on the opening possession, thanks to the big Bush run and the tacked on 15 yards.
