I love the little things. The "things that don't show up in a box score."
Last week or the week before, there was a long kick return by the Chiefs and the returner got past everybody except the kicker. Instead of trying to run through or around the kicker, he had the awareness to simply slow down and let a couple of blockers get in front of him and blow up the kicker, so he could cruis unimpeded into the endzone. Otherwise, he likely would have only had a nice 60 yard return or something.
Tonight, during OT of the Bengals/Dolphins game, the Dolphins ran a long pass play down the right side. The DB covering the receiver got burnt, however, instead of just continuing to run behind the guy and allowing an almost certain game winning TD, he made the quick decision to just tackle the guy and take the interference penalty. Sure the Fins got 50 yards out of the deal, but the game wasn't over, and in fact, 3 plays later, they were punting.
