The most impressive thing about Bryant's touchdown is how easy he made it look. He shrugged off a Patrick Robinson tackle attempt like it was nothing. Casually holding the ball with one hand, Bryant sent Isa Abdul-Quddus to the turf with a stiff arm before trotting, almost effortlessly, into the endzone.

There is the caveat that this play came against the Saints, but despite how bad New Orleans' defense was last season, this touchdown is still impressive.

Darrius Heyward-Bey is known for his speed, but he also showed some power and concentration on this 55-yard touchdown.

Heyward-Bey hauled in the pass from Carson Palmer but was blasted immediately by Ed Reed. Not only did Heyward-Bey manage to hang onto the ball, he also maintained his balance and was able to turn up field. At that point, Heyward-Bey showed off the speed he's known for, sprinting the remaining 35 yards for the touchdown. James Ihedigbo attempted to run him down and made a diving tackle attempt, but Heyward-Bey stepped out of it and into the endzone.
