Power Play Of The Week: Brad Smith's Crafty Touchdown

Sometimes, bigger plays (made or left on the field) in a football game are overshadowed by single-down efforts that, even if made by the losing team, have people talking at the water cooler on a Monday morning. That is the case today with Brad Smith of the Buffalo Bills.

Though his play was hardly the story of the day - a certain fellow receiver stole the show, and in a negative way - Smith's game-tying touchdown grab against Antonio Cromartie of the New York Jets was one of the craftiest plays you'll ever see.

Trailing 21-14 late in the third quarter, Ryan Fitzpatrick went deep to Smith down the right sideline. As Fitzpatrick does, he under-threw the go route just a touch. Smith slowed up his route to break up a potential interception, and in doing so, punched the ball straight into the air. He then caught the tipped pass and squirmed into the end zone for a 36-yard score that tied the game.

Yes, Buffalo lost the game, but it's not often that you see a play made of the caliber of Smith's.
