Week 4 is finally complete and we put together some of the best plays from the weekend. Enjoy.
Dexter McCluster 89-yard punt return TD
Perhaps the play of the week from McCluster. A spectacular punt return that saw him duke and spin his way to the endzone, he showed off his agility in the first half of the return and then his blistering pace once he had clear space to run. No one was catching him and this play piled on the misery for the struggling New York Giants.
Adrian Peterson 60 yard TD run v Steelers
Another highlight reel play from Adrian Peterson, he beat a number of Steelers defenders tackles on his way to the endzone. He prove the point that he is incredibly hard to bring down whilst he is in full flight. He followed the 60-yard run with a short TD run later in the game.
Greg Jennings 70 yard TD catch vs Steelers
Jennings is a veteran receiver but he showed he still has some speed in his legs as he jinked his way through the Steelers defence and then out ran the secondary to the endzone. It opened the scoring and set the tone for the rest of the game for the Minnesota Vikings as they went on to claim their first win of the season.
Trindon Holliday 105 yd kickoff return v Eagles
Trindon Holliday has already showed his returning ability when he took a punt all the way for a touchdown against the New York Giants. The victims this time were the Philadelphia Eagles, Holliday took the kickoff back 105 yards for a touchdown and he wasn’t even touched on the way. It was a poor effort by the Eagles but Holliday showed his pace to elude the defenders.
Matt Forte 53-yard TD run v Lions
Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is not really known for his long runs but this was a big play against a Lions defense that didn’t seem to want to tackle him. Not one single defender laid a hand on him on the way to the endzone, he won’t get many more easier runs that than this season.
