It was another fun weekend in the NFL, although it could have been better if the Dolphins would have held on against the Broncos, right?

As usual, there was no shortage of great plays. Let’s start with Odell Beckham Jr.’s one-handed touchdown grab against Dallas. Here it is from Rob Perez’s Vine:

While Denver didn’t lose Sunday, it’s clear the Broncos aren’t shy about turning on each other. After Brandon McManus missed a 33-yard field goal, Manny Ramirez and Demaryius Thomas didn’t try to hide their frustration.

This is from Chris Sembower’s Vine:

The Bears’ Chris Conte made a nice interception against the Buccaneers. This is from Matthew Schwera’s Vine:

Finally, here is the anti-Beckham catch, one that was any NFL player could make. It was in the Packers-Vikings game and is from Peyton’s Head Vine:
