NFL players, Jerry Jones react to DeAndre Hopkins' double-spin move.

1. DeAndre Hopkins played a vital role in the Texans' 19-16 overtime win against the Cowboys on Sunday night with a 49-yard reception to set up the game-winning field goal.

The play was notable because Hopkins pulled off a double-spin move, leaving Cowboys players on the turf and fellow NFLers very impressed.






Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also took note of Hopkins's big game—nine catches for 151 yards—because after the defeat, he not only lamented Dallas's lack of a No. 1 receiver, but he also questioned Jason Garrett's absurd decision to punt from Houston's 42-yard line on a 4th-and-1 in overtime.

It looks like this may be the beginning of the end of Garrett in Dallas.

2. More from around the NFL on Sunday:

• The single-greatest highlight on Sunday was Hue Jackson telling his team there were two seconds remaining in the game even though the game was over after a game-winning field goal.

• You must listen to the Spanish radio call of Graham Gano's bonkers 63-yard game-winning field goal against the Giants.

• Cam Newton: Passer, runner, great dresser and BLOCKER. 

• Yes, he's biased because the penalty was called on his brother, but it's still great to see NFL players call out the refs for ridiculous roughing-the-passer calls.

3. Here's Steph Curry being Steph Curry on Sunday.

4. What a night for Braves rookie Ronald Acuña. He became the youngest player in history to hit a postseason grand slam on Sunday and then revealed that he's never heard of Mickey Mantle.

5. If you missed it on Saturday, Gus Johnson had a VINTAGE Gus Johnson call on Texas's game-winning field goal against Oklahoma.

If you want more Gus, check out his recent appearance on the SI Media Podcast, where he talked about leaving social media, why he loves the NCAA Tournament so much, his all-time favorite call, why he misses the NFL, his worst on-air gaffe and much more.

6. FOX used Joy Taylor as the sideline reporter for Sunday's Rams-Seahawks game and she did not seem all that enthused, to say the least.
