NFL is back, and it's back with a vengenance. The league is all about parity - and that was on show on Sunday with there being a history-breaking four games that were decided by one point - as well as two big comebacks.

There were two games that had over 70 points scored - both decided by less than a touchdown on an exciting nine plus hours of action.

Here's the five best plays of the day, including a bonus clip of Raider's quarterback Derek Carr, and Titans running back DeMarco Murray flipping over defenders:

5. Brandin Cooks 98-Yard-Touchdown

What a shoot-out it was in New Orleans. Drew Brees and Derek Carr went blow for blow by carving through bad defenses. Brees through this on his own two-yard-line to Cooks who ran it in to equal the Saints longest ever touchdown:



4. Jimmy Garoppolo Pass to himself

Life without Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski was supposed to be hard. Travelling to Arizona to face title contenders the Cardinals, the Patriots and Jimmy G earned a big win. Chris Hogan and LeGarrette Blount got the touchdowns for the Pats, with veteran receiver Larry Fitzgerald also crossing for two.

But the highlight was a rather strange play where Garoppolo managed to complete a pass... to himself.

Naturally, there have been a lot of "Tom who?" headlines in America this morning.


3. Oakland Raider madness


The Oakland Raiders have got balls. 47 seconds left, they score a huge touchdown, and just need an extra point - a virtual guarantee - to tie the game and send it to overtime.

Instead, the Raiders decide to go for a two-point conversion. Make it and they win, miss and they lose and will be ridiculed.

Serious balls.



Raiders head coach even took to twitter after the game to slam ESPN for daring to suggest he shouldn't have gone for the win:

2. Austin Seferian Jenkins Diving Touchdown Catch

If you had Jameis Winston as your fantasy quarterback, you're probably waking up to a victory and a big smile on your face.

The second-year quarterback made great strides already in his four-touchdown performance - but this deep throw to his Tight-End Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

What a bloody haul in from Seferian-Jenkins

1. Aaron Rodgers Magic

We already showed you the play of the day. What can you say about Rodgers? It wasn't a vintage performance from the Green Bay offense severely tested by an improved Jaguars team - but they couldn't handle it when Rodgers went off script and did things like this:
