Credit the Minnesota Vikings for having a clear offensive identity nearly all season. Feel free to knock them for getting away from it last week.

The Steelers had the ball on fourth down from the Seahawks’ 27-yard-line as the first quarter came to a close with Ben Roethlisberger and the offense still on the field. It appeared the Steelers changed their mind about going for it once the second quarter kicked off because they had the field goal team on…
(Video Link) The three lions are playing ball--just barely. In contrast with a fast-paced game of human soccer, the trio remain firmly affixed to the floor. To make it worse, the lion on the left appears to be gesturing for a substitution. He needs a breather. -via Tastefully Offensive

The Bills forced the ball to Sammy Watkins for two quarters, then inexplicably stopped throwing his way in the second half. The gameplan for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday appeared to be throw to Sammy Watkins over and over, and it worked excellently early. Show More Summary

With time expiring in the second half, the Raiders were trying everything to get the ball in the end zone. Even sacrificing a full grown human being to the football gods. This play did not end in a touchdown, but it did end in Seth Roberts getting fully devoured by Jurrell Casey. Show More Summary
The Bengals tried to throw the ball to Jake Fisher, an offensive tackle, and it did not work. It was, however, hilarious.

Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr likely saved a touchdown by tracking down Falcons running back Tevin Coleman and stripping the ball in the open field. Coleman had burst free down the right sideline and cut into the open field, seemingly home free. Show More Summary
Tevin Coleman has looked pretty good for the Falcons this year. Not so much here. Coleman rumbled 45-yards before Anthony Barr came up and just punched it right out of his hand. BALL SECURITY DUDE COME ONNNNN.
This is one of the most bizarre interceptions of the season. This was an interception in three acts: Act 1: Eli Manning throws a pass that's tipped by Will Blackmon -- Washington fans are happy. Act 2: The tipped ball carries to Dwayne...Show More Summary
I like cosplay as much as the next guy. This Hadouken cosplay is funny, cool, and gross all at the same time. Rather than shooting a blue ball of flame from his palms, this cosplayer is…
