Default Favourite play you've ever witnessed

A play which has made you stand up and go, oh my god did I just see that.

As a Giants fan, the 2 main ones being pivotal in the 2 SuperBowl wins I've witnessed as a fan.

The Tyree helmet catch was unbelievable, Manning fighting to escape a sack and then basically throwing a Hail Mary down field.

And one of the greatest throws I think I will ever see, Manning to Manningham, in the smallest possible window. Manningham superbly keeping his feet inbounds when bring in the catch.

---------------------------------------------

From other teams I would suppose it may be the James Harrison 100 yard half ending interception touchdown in Super Bowl XLIII.

I've picked 3 Super Bowl plays just because they always feel like they mean more

Joesph addai's game winning touchdown to send the colts to superbowl 41.

Because of the key to the play. Something which happened just this once i believe and certainly hasnt happened since.

And that is vince wilfork being manhandled one on one.

Jeff saturday moved him backwards and kept going. Seriousky te pats proper class d parted like the red sea on that play and it started with jeff saturday giving up at least 60 lbs (4 stone) and just treating him like a little child.

Jake delhomme versus the chargers in week one a few years back.

He threw
His pump fake so hard the cameraman brought it and moved the camera early and nearly missed the walk off game winning touchdown

Music City Miracle for me in terms of actually watching the game live. Incredible play at the very death of a playoff game.

Honorary mentions: The Butt Fumble and Chris Davis 107yd return for Auburn against Bama from college.

Favre to Greg Lewis, a "I cannot believe that just happened" play

In terms of the Lions, the play that stands out most in my mind is the last gasp hail mary against the Titans a couple of years back:

Crazy, crazy game.

The Saints' onside kick in the Superbowl was another 'wow' moment, turned the game totally.

In College the Boise State Statue Of Liberty Play. Just brilliant.

Fitz putting the Cards ahead with a couple of minutes to go in the Superbowl was pretty special.

Without a doubt the flea flicker for a huge Fitz TD in the NFC championship game. Amazing.
