NFL Top Five: All The Best Action As Julio Jones Catches For 300 Yards On INSANE Sunday

While some legendary tussles at the Ryder Cup made most of the headlines on Sunday evening, some of the barn-burning may have slipped your radar.

The Falcons' Julio Jones became just the 4th player in the Super Bowl era to catch for over 300 yards in an incredible 48-33 win over last season's runners up in the Carolina Panthers (the first since Megatron in 2013 to achieve such a feat). Michael Crabtree caught three TDs of his own in the Raiders' upset over the previously undefeated Baltimore Ravens. And late last night, Ben Rothlisberger went ape on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Steelers' 43-14 win.

Here are the top five moments from Sunday's incredible action.

Jimmy Graham one-handed grab

After an iffy couple of seasons, 29-year-old tight end Jimmy Graham continued his ascent towards his previous best - a one-handed grab against the Jets the highlight in his second successive strong offensive display. The Hawks took this one 27-17.


Will Fuller punt return TD


First round draft pick Will Fuller has wheels. The 22-year-old Notre Dame grad took this one to the house from fully 67 yards without breaking a sweat. The Texans beat Tennessee 27-20.

Derek Carr to Michael Crabtree winning TD (Crabtree's third)


The Raiders are going to be *a lot* of fun to watch this year, and are now 3-1 thanks to a sensational upset of the Ravens in Baltimore. Michael Crabtree? More like Michael Grab Three! Right? Jesus... A perfectly weighted pass from QB Derek Carr and some - bear with me - 'toe-drag swag' from his wide receiver with two minutes on the clock saw Oakland leave with the W.

Julio Jones 300 yards

The 27-year-old is 6'3, weights 100kg and runs the 40-metre dash in 4.39 seconds. He made shite of Carolina last night, grabbing a piece of history in the process. The Falcons have now averaged 38 points in their opening four fixtures.

Antonio Brown TD, hip-thrust penalty

The Steelrs look the real deal despite last weekend's heavy defeat. Le'Veon Bell's return saw him make some monster runs, and Antonio Brown continues to be one of the leading receivers in American football. He can consider himself very unlucky to give away a penalty at the restart for excessively celebrating his TD catch. Was there a third thrust of the hips?
