Deion Branch was cool with the call. The referees were not. Soon after Ravens safety Ed Reed steamed across the field and blasted Branch hard with his shoulder in Sunday night's Baltimore win, Branch and Reed could be seen talking with each other and smiling on the field.

Today in Sports History: McAlister’s Field Goal Return

On this day in 2002, Chris McAlister returned a missed field goal 107 yards making it the longest NFL play at the time (later broken  by Antonio Cromartie).
