4. Amendola Improvisation

Danny Amendola is one slippery sonuvagun. You can tell that Tom Brady thinks that Amendola's going to run straight up the field, while Amendola is trying to cross the field to whip the defender away. The Patriots are lucky that Amendola didn't shake both the defender and the pass.

The fact that Tom Brady has developed an ability to scramble has allowed the Patriots to counter a three-man rush. This was the biggest and best way for Rex Ryan to stymie the New England offense. Who knows what wrinkle they'll develop to get after Brady next.

5. Gronk Doing Gronk Things

There are three Rob Gronkowski plays in this bracket and this is the second play to end on the two yard line. Gronk didn't just convert on a major third down in the red zone against the best home team in the NFL. He faced off against half of the Green Bay defense and almost drove into the end zone.
