NFL Top 5: More Odell Beckham Magic And The Other Unmissable Plays From Sunday's Action

NFL Top 5: More Odell Beckham Magic And The Other Unmissable Plays From Sunday's Action
By Gavan Casey Updated

Sunday's NFL action contained some Odell Beckham spin move magic along with some incredible scores and defensive plays, and even a fake punt.

Carson Wentz continued to impress for this season's surprise package, the Eagles, while Andrew Luck and TY Hilton inspired the Colts to a fourth quarter comeback over a plucky Chargers in Indianapolis.

The Browns continued to brown the place out, the Jets threw six interceptions, and the Tony Romo-less Cowboys improved to 2-1 with victory over the dreadful Chicago Bears.

These were our favourite plays on a pulsating night of action:

5) Odell Beckham spin move/stiff-arm on Josh Norman

Washington's trip to New Jersey had been billed throughout the week as Odell Beckham Jr vs Josh Norman following last season's explosive matchup between the pair.
A spectacular one-handed catch along the sidelines was a standout, but watching Beckham ruin his nemesis Norman with a stiff-arm/spin move combo was as exhilarating as any score during the game.


4) Carson Wentz to Darren Sproles, 72-yard TD

Rookie Wentz improves to 3-0 and still hasn't thrown an interception. He showed his youth-defying guile, here, evading oncoming tacklers before popping the ball to Sproles, who remains electric. The former Saints RB turns the Steelers defenders - and commentator - inside out before crossing the whitewash.

3) Doug Baldwin one-handed catch

One of the bet catches you'll see all season from the 28-year-old Baldwin, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2011. Seattle improve their record to 2-1 after blitzing divisional rivals the San Francisco 49ers, who are still doomed. There is some concern for quarterback Russell Wilson, however, who appeared to sprain his knee in the 4th quarter.

2) Redskins, fake punt and first down

A sensational fourth down completion by 'Skins punter Tress Way, who had never passed the ball before in his career. He's now one-for-one. The flag on the play was mysterious, as there's no offensive pass interference on a punt, but it was eventually dismissed by the officials.


1) Andrew Luck to TY Hilton, game-winning TD

With just over a minute remaining in the game and the Indianapolis Colts trailing the San Diego Chargers at home, fourth-year quarterback Andrew Luck found the electrifying TY Hilton who took it to the house. The Colts get off the mark and now stand at 1-2.
