NFL week three is nearing its end and we have been witness to some incredible games over the weekend.

As has become custom, that means we also have our plays of the week post, which is now being broken up into catches and rushes. So, without further ado, here are the top five rushes from the third week of NFL action. Scroll down to see the top five.

5. Eddie Lacy

After a 2015 season in which his weight was questioned weekly by those in and out of the franchise, the Green Bay Packers man seems to be back somewhere near his best - even if he is still rather chunky. Lacy rumbled for a 23-yard gain against the Lions that ended with a violent shake-off of a Detroit defender. Lovely stuff.

4. LeSean McCoy

We don't really get to see it enough anymore, but when McCoy still goes full Shady it is a treat for all. The Bills star showed a glimpse of it against the Arizona Cardinals as he pulled out his trademark lateral cuts and jukes to devastating effect. When McCoy is on his day, there is no more exciting back in the league.

3. Darren Sproles

There's life in the old man yet! The first non-rushing play of the day belongs to the Eagles back, who put on the afterburners and showed that he still has his dancing shoes in his locker as Sproles burnt the Steelers secondary on this beautiful score as Philly ran rampant on Pittsburgh in a big upset win.

2 - A.J Green

Wide receivers are people too...and they have moves. A.J. Green showed that for the Bengals in a day that didn't go to plan against the Denver Broncos. The Cincinnati star broke the ankles of Aqib Talib on a filthy juke. The sexiest 12 yards of the week.

1 - Odell Beckham Jr

How could he not make it!? The Giants may have lost to the Redskins but Odell was still on top form, winning his matchup against Josh Norman in fine style. At one point Beckham managed to put Norman on skates, sending him flying with a perfect spin move out of nowhere, before taking two other Redskins out of the play with a move to the inside. Fully deserving of the top spot.
