    While not as historically significant, Ray Crittendend's (please excuse spelling) catch in the corner of the end zone vs Miami was amazing.

    How many of these are available on youtube? I'm guessing just the two most recent but if there are more I'd love to see it.

    I can't speak about TDs pre-1984, but I like your list...mostly. Numbers 3 and 4 are cool, but I'm not sure if they are top-10 material. I'd replace Tatupu's AFCCG TD with the fumble he caused and was recovered by Bowman for a TD that beat LA the week before.

    I'd include:

    - Branch's 60yd TD in AFCCG (Brady's flu game)
    - Moss' TD in triple coverage vs. Jets (instant classic)

    Since this happened in the preseason, it only deserves honorable mention, but is without a doubt the coolest TD the Pats have ever scored:

    1987 at Vikings: Pats receive opening kickoff and start on their own 20. Grogan hands off to Tatupu who immediately is swallowed up by Chris Doleman (one of the NFL's best DEs at the time). The Vikings fans cheer loudly for the stuff, but a funny thing happened. The play was actually a flea flicker that Doleman made difficult, but not impossible. Doleman spun Mosi around so Doleman was actually between him and Grogan, but as Mosi was going to the ground he was able to flip the ball around Doleman to Grogan. Grogan took the returned toss and looked downfield to a wide open Stanley Morgan and hit him in stride for the 80yd TD. The Vikings fans went from cheers to silence in seconds.

    Only in the preseason would a player attempt an insane flip back to his QB while being smothered by the D as Mosi was.

    Regards,
    Chris

    P.S. I have a special place in my heart for #5 on your list. Big Ben Right was the call. What a great way to win a game.

    My two favorites are both against the Stillers...

    11) Brady to Branch in the AFC Championship, to help beat the 15-1 Steelers at home.
    12) Blocked kick in 3 Rivers in the AFC Championship, on our way to NO and the first Superbowl championship.

    since you grouped two together, what about the 3 by patten? one running, one passing and one receiving, all in one game

    Amen, brother. If you hadn't mentioned that one, I would have.

    [FYI, it's actually a tie for longest play--Nathan Vasher and Devin Hester also had 108-yard returns of blocked FGs--but it's the longest KO return in NFL history, and may very well never be broken (until/unless the NFL makes fields longer :) ).]

    I kind of liked a certain blocked FG runback, even if it was later determined to have involved a forward lateral.

    I think there was also a punt return TD in that game that was pretty sweet.
