Worst Halfcourt Shot Ever

NFL Round-Up

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown returned a punt 71 yards and had the best touchdown celebration of the season ... The Bills fans remain the best in football ... Odell Beckham Jr. made another crazy one-handed catch ... The ref and ballboy did not want Cam Newton to have this football ... It was not a great day for the Rams ... Same for Dick Stockton and Ted Ginn ... Brandon Marshall says a Giants player trash-talked his wife ... Bill Belichick was all over referee Sarah Thomas ... Mike Tolbert busted out the Carlton Dance after scoring for Carolina ... Tom Brady threw the first red zone pick-six of his career (and whiffed horrifically on the tackle) ... The Saints blocked an extra point attempt and recorded the first two-point return in NFL history ... Ben Roethlisberger hit the pylon with a pass ... Cordarrelle Patterson had a great celebration (despite his Vikings being down 35 points) ... Fans were not pleased President Obama interrupted Sunday Night Football ... Woody Johnson dabbed after the Jets win.

Will the Saints end up trading coach Sean Payton? ... Security guards in Houston are no joke ... Kristaps Porzingis has his own rap song and here are the lyrics ... Rajon Rondo can pass ...
