Undefeated football plays of the week: Week 6 See the dope highlights you might have missed

We had costumes, a proposal and some dynamite plays in this week’s edition of Undefeated Plays of the Week. Let’s get right into it!

Monday Night Football

What is going on?

Before the Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets faced off on Monday Night Football, an unfamiliar face showed up on the field.

Yes, that is a dinosaur. Well, actually, it’s Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson. Apparently, Peterson lost the team’s “QB bucket challenge.”

According to AZCentral.com, the bucket challenge is a Friday competition between the team’s quarterbacks and Peterson in which they see who can throw a football inside of a bucket. The loser has to wear a crazy outfit before the team’s game that week. Quarterback Carson Palmer said he took the challenge with him from his days with the Cincinnati Bengals, and that former Bengals quarterback Jon Kitna invented it.

The people need to see this game live. If the consequences are this extreme, I’m sure the competitiveness is crazy.


Reilly? HOW?!

Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Brandon Reilly made an unbelievable catch early against the Indiana Hoosiers. It looks like a glitch from a video game. Peep it!

The ball appears to go off of Hoosiers defensive back Marcelino Ball, who has to be mad about this. I’d be mad about this.

Meanwhile, Reilly was making plays and catching milestones at the same time.

A proposal … and no, it’s not Odell’s

After Samford University beat Virginia Military Institute, 55-21, linebacker Deion Pierre decided to propose to his girlfriend, Jasmine Henderson. However, instead of flying in solo, Pierre enlisted the help of some of his teammates to make this a proposal to remember.

Song Choice: Ed Sheeran is always a win. 5/5

Choreography: Simple, but effective. 5/5

Originality: 5/5

Cuteness: 5/5

Overall: 5/5

Meeks shifts the momentum

The Stanford Cardinal were down 10-0 … that is until Quenton Meeks was like, “Nah, this ain’t happening,” and decided to make the play of the game.

After the game, Meeks tweeted out the highlight, saying that he was trying to emulate the great Deion Sanders.

On to Sunday!

Wright skies out

Against the Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota put a little too much air on the deep ball to Kendall Wright. But that’s nothing the fleet-footed wide receiver couldn’t fix, am I Wright?

*I apologize for the pun, I’ll let the highlight do the talking.*

The Titans were able to hang on to beat the Browns, 28-26.

All aboard the Heyward-Bey train

The Pittsburgh Steelers struggled on offense against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but this play by Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey:

That truck, though.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, it all went downhill after that, as the Dolphins went on to win, 30-15.

Odell buries Baltimore

With the New York Giants down three with 1:36 left in the game, quarterback Eli Manning decided to hit up his favorite target, Odell Beckham Jr. Manning threw it, like, 12 yards, and Beckham took it from there.

You could tell he was pumped after the game just by looking at his timeline alone.


You may hate the antics, but one thing is for sure: Beckham saved the game for the Giants and also saved the team from losing four games in a row.

That’s all, folks. Be sure to check back next week for Plays of the Week: The Undefeated Edition.
