Larry Fitzgerald may not have had his best season in 2012, but he looked as unstoppable as ever on this 31-yard touchdown.

Fitzgerald found a hole in zone coverage and made the catch seven yards down field. A quick turn to the inside caused Dezman Moses to whiff on his first tackle attempt. A stiff arm then took Tramon Williams right out of the play. M.D. Jennings came running in and had a shot, but Fitzgerald spotted him at the lest second and sent him flailing with a quick move inside. Finally, Moses got a second chance and although he brought Fitzgerald down, it was too late as Fitzgerald reached across the goaline.

C.J. Spiller appeared destined for a short gain on this 44-yard touchdown, but was able to turn nothing into something in a blink of an eye.

Spiller went from being bottled up in the middle of the field to bursting outside with one move. Once outside, there wasn't much the Jacksonville defenders could do. One reached out an arm while Dawan Landry attempted a diving tackle, but Spiller shrugged it off with ease and walked into the endzone.
