14-7: Minnesota's Decker Catches TD Pass and Pays For It. Hard.

Minnesota quarterback Adam Weber found Eric Decker in the near right corner of the end zone. After review it was confirmed as a touchdown, and on the same play, Decker tied the record for most receptions by a Gopher.

Minutes later, though, team personnel is still tending to him. He was absolutely destroyed by a head-and-shoulder hit immediately after the catch, and it’s a minor miracle that he was able to hold on to the ball. The commentators are reporting that the hit actually broke Decker's shoulder pads.

The Decker has become the decked.
