The NFL is great but there are certain things that happen during games that are just better than others.
Field goals making an audible clang after hitting the posts, a hit so hard it pops the receiving player's helmet off, one-handed diving catches and ball carriers hurdling defenders are all truly excellent plays that stand out the most.

Reid played his college football at Princeton and was pre-med before coming to the NFL as a fifth-round pick by the Detroit Lions in 2014. Despite his TD, the Chargers lost 26-22 in Indianapolis.
