Undefeated football plays of the week: Week 2
See what dope highlights you might have missed
Another week, another pack string of highlights to speak on. We saw Louisville’s Lamar Jackson dominate Florida State, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford outplay Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers and a bevy of great catches and tackles. Let’s get into it.
Monday Night Football
Philadelphia running back Ryan Mathews will not be denied. The Eagles had not had a touchdown in the game, but Mathews decided that should change. Look at this monster effort!
That @rmathews24 2nd effort…
TOUCHDOWN! 💪💪💪 #PHIvsCHI #FlyEaglesFly https://t.co/xl4MYYQcD5

Ryan Mathews scores on a play where I would have fallen over and started crying almost immediately.
— BleedingGreenNation (@BleedingGreen) September 20, 2016
Tremendous balance by Ryan Mathews. Glad Doug listened to me and stopped giving Sproles the ball and started getting it to the other backs!

Leonard Fournette straight trucking. We already knew that LSU running back Fournette was one of the hardest players to tackle in all of college football. He had a new highlight to add to the resume. Check this out.
I swear I’d seen that in an old WWE match or something. That stiff arm was absolutely VICIOUS.
Idc, Leonard Fournette is still the best all around RB in college football

Leonard Fournette really is unstoppable😱
— St. Justin (@GloBoii) September 19, 2016
Every time I see that boy Leonard Fournette run that ball I feel like I'm underachieving as a man. I gotta get in the gym.
— Rashad Johnson (@rashadjay15) September 18, 2016
I'd rather get posterized than catch Leonard Fournette's stiff arm 👀

Same, Tyler. Same.
Leonard Fournette: Monday

This was just the cover highlight of his stellar day. Fournette finished with 147 yards for two touchdowns in an LSU win.
How did he do that?
The Ohio State-Oklahoma game wasn’t really all that close – Ohio won 45-24 – but when you’re two pretty prestigious teams, you’re bound to see some highlights like this from Buckeyes receiver Noah Brown, a sophomore.
Did he just catch it … on the corner’s back?
That catch Noah Brown made behind the DBs back was INSANE…. great TD catch

Urban Meyer on Noah Brown's incredible catch: "I can't repeat the words I heard from upstairs after that play."
— Eric Seger (@EricSeger33) September 18, 2016
Insane. Unreal. Crazy. That play just reminds me of a Madden glitch for some reason.
That was only one of his FOUR touchdowns from that game. A good enough stat line to win Big Ten Offensive player of the week.
Winner: Louisville … The whole team.
Quarterback Jackson was featured in last week’s Undefeated Edition, but this time his whole team put the beatdown on Florida State.
63-20. Ouch. Everything was going the Cardinals’ way.
First, we have Jackson absolutely cooking the competition.
INCREDIBLE showing from Lamar Jackson for @UofLFootball 💯

Then we have this amazing catch. This is how you know it’s not your day on the football field. Shout-out to wide receiver James Quick.
I don't know how that happened. But WOW. James Quick HUGE catch and run.
— Mark Blankenbaker (@UofLSheriff50) September 17, 2016
And then we have a little truck stick action by wide receiver Jaylen Smith.
— Jaylen Smith (@JaylenSmith_12) September 18, 2016
Best WR in the NCAA .. Don't argue with me @JaylenSmith_12
— Easy $ Bates (@THEDESIGNGOD1) September 17, 2016
Truck stick! https://t.co/3H1G1zItJA

Sunday Night Football
Hurdle City population: Running back LeGarrette Blount of the New England Patriots. We PlayStation users call this a triangle button.
How would you name his ridiculous @LG_Blount hurdle?
Let us know by using #NTPBlount! https://t.co/nf8wTEjhqL
— NFL (@NFL) September 19, 2016
Getting the awe from fans and teammates alike:
Martellus on LG Blount's hurdle: "How does he keep doing that? LeGarrette doesn't look like he can do that!"
— Kevin Duffy (@KevinRDuffy) September 18, 2016
Martellus Bennett on Blount's hurdle: "He's like Bambi."
— Doug Kyed (@DougKyed) September 18, 2016
The 29-year-old running back has bounce for days. The best football hurdles are the ones where they keep running for a bit like nothing ever happened.
Wide receiver Stefon Diggs buries the Green Bay Packers. Sam Bradford overpowered the Packers’ Rodgers, but Diggs had himself a monster game on Sunday Night Football. This catch plus dance combo was lit. Because he was digging … like Diggs. Get it? What a time.
WOW WOW WOW Sam Bradford & @stefon_diggs! 🙌#GBvsMIN #SKOL https://t.co/Wex0YfXSPc

This wasn’t the only dope play that happened Monday night.
The throw from Bradford was nice…but that catch, @stefon_diggs, just…WOW!! #GBvsMIN #Skol https://t.co/yzc7TMDaVE
— NFL (@NFL) September 19, 2016
Oh my God Stefon Diggs is amazing.
— Testudo Times (@testudotimes) September 19, 2016
Sam Bradford's playbook can be simplified to this:
1.) Throw to Stefon Diggs
2.) Don't throw to anyone else
3.) OK, maybe Thielen sometimes
— Phil Mackey (@PhilMackey) September 19, 2016
Stefon Diggs is the Vikings offense. The national audience is about to know how good he is after tonight.
— Matt Harmon (@MattHarmon_BYB) September 19, 2016
Wait, that happened?
Usually when a pass gets tipped high into the air, it’s bad news for the offense. Well, the Atlanta Falcons blew a major sigh of relief on this one from quarterback Matt Ryan in their game against the Oakland Raiders.
Off one receiver and right to Justin Hardy. TD!
We see you, @AtlantaFalcons! 😜 #ATLvsOAK https://t.co/p5FkVvXnHz
— NFL (@NFL) September 18, 2016
About time Matt Ryan had the bounce of ball go his way, I was thinking it was impossible for him to get lucky, hold on Birds!!!
— Andrew Kevin Lesley (@lesley_andrew) September 18, 2016
Tip drill for @FreakMagic2!
Justin Hardy's first career touchdown. pic.twitter.com/Laqse4HlBL

Wide receiver Justin Hardy saved the day as the Falcons took the win.
