Texans linebacker Brian Cushing was mic'd up during last Sunday's game against the Browns. We lucked out because Cushing ended up getting into a skirmish with Cleveland offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao (at the 2:40 mark), which ended with Cushing headbutting Lauvao sans helmet. The photo above is the result of that move. Other highlights in the clip come at the 10-second mark when Cushing says, "My arms are lookin' sweet today," and at the 1:26 mark when Cushing boasts, "I'm so good it's sick." We also get to hear Cushing talk poetry with running back Arian Foster. (Thanks to Chris Forde, of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Allen, of Houston, for the link.)
Touchdowns Aren't Touchdowns
Somehow, this wasn't a touchdown by Chargers receiver Vincent Brown last night. But at least we got a classic Ed Hochuli moment.
Call Of The Day
The announcer who called this game-winning field goal from a Chicago high school football game in October definitely has a future in the WWE.

Brooklyn Decker :: SI
William, of Lincoln, Neb., says, "Jimmy, I was stationed in Iraq for two years and Hot Clicks helped me get through a lot of days. In honor of Veterans Day on Friday, all I want to see is Brooklyn Decker in Hot Clicks. Make it happen." That's certainly an easy enough request to fulfill. Many thanks to William and all of the veterans out there for what they've done.
Extra Motivation
In Thursday's P.M. Hot Clicks, I told you about the conflict facing Kelsi Reich on Sunday with the Bills visiting the Cowboys. Reich is one of Dallas' cheerleaders, but she's also dating Buffalo wide receiver David Nelson. Here's another interesting Bills-Cowboys connection: The childhood home of Buffalo running back Fred Jackson was torn down because it was located where Jerry Jones built Dallas' new stadium.
