History books are filled with great moments in sport whether it is football, soccer, baseball, basketball, golf, tennis or any other sport you’d care to watch. The National Football League has been the most watched sports league by Americans for decades and the action in 2014 has been better than ever. People go to their games or watch them on television with friends and family and hang on to their every play. Every once in awhile, you will see an awesome play people talk about for years and years. Touchdowns are at the forefront of those plays people like to talk about, especially when it’s a game everyone watches. Below are the top 5 NFL touchdowns of 2014 that we think people are going to talk about for years and years to come.
Marshawn Lynch – Seahawks Vs Cardinals
Ranked number 1 in the top 5 NFL touchdowns of 2014 is the touchdown scored by Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks. He ran for a 70-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals. This touchdown left everyone flabbergasted. He broke 4 tackles, inches from being pushed out of bounds, and finally falls into the end zone. Absolutely sublime play that is an absolute joy to watch!
Odell Beckham Jr – Giants vs Cowboys
Odell Beckham Jr. takes the number 2 spot in top 5 NFL touchdowns. Being a rookie in the NFL, Beckham did a backflip one-handed catch in the end zone. The New York Giants wide receiver had fans screaming and cheering at the top of their lungs. While Dallas Cowboy fans were standing in the stands with their jaws left open in shock like how in the heck did he pull that off.
JJ Watt – Texans Vs Browns
There is no question with placing JJ Watt at number 3 spot. When you think of a defensive lineman, you don’t think of some who runs or catches the ball much less scores touchdowns. He broke NFL records in the game against the Cleveland Browns when he scored his fourth touchdown of the season. Every sports show raved and raved about this touchdown pass because of the 66-year record that has been broken.
Johnny Manziel – Browns vs Buffalo Bills
When you think of NFL teams, the Browns are probably at the bottom of the list. For the year of 2014, their rookie quarterback, Johnny Manziel, scored their first touchdown in the game against the Buffalo Bills leaving fans hooting and hollering. With a ten-yard rushing touchdown, this puts Johnny Manziel in the 4th spot for best NFL touchdowns of 2014.
JJ Watt – Texans vs Colts
Rank number 5 in the top 5 NFL touchdowns of 2014 goes to who else? JJ Watt. Watt scored more touchdowns this season than many star receivers, so he deserves to make this list twice. This fumble recovery returned for a score makes the list because Watt followed it up with an awkward “nae-nae” dance celebration. Awesome.
It has been proven time and time again football is one of those sports where you never know what is going to happen. This is one of the reasons companies like Lux Bet have such wide and varied betting markets. When defensive players like JJ Watt score multiple touchdowns on both sides of the ball, it just goes to show you that anything can happen in the NFL.
