New England Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks, right, drags his toes as he makes the game-winning catch in the end zone for a touchdown in front of Houston Texans safety Corey Moore, left, during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017, in Foxborough, Mass.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” noted Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu after Detroit had a go-ahead touchdown with 8 seconds remaining taken away by replay — and the Lions lost any chance for another play because of a relatively obscure rule requiring a 10-second runoff.
Green Bay tied the game when Rodgers — Brady isn’t the only quarterback capable of such heroics — guided the Packers 75 yards in just over three minutes to a 3-yard TD pass to Jordy Nelson.
But Chicago, which showed plenty of resilience in an opening loss to Atlanta in which Howard dropped a potential winning TD pass, turned it up in OT.
