As awesome as this play was, the symbolism behind it made it more special. Vilma was supposed to be suspended for the entire 2012 season and for him to make this play in week 17 was the ultimate middle finger to Roger Goodell. Too bad this game otherwise put the exclamation point on a 7-9 season dominated by horrendous defensive play, and ended in a loss. Still, Vilma will always be remembered as an immortalized Saint and this play nicely bookends what could have been the last game of his career in black and gold. Unfortunately I wasn't able to embed this play but you can watch it by going HERE.    Previous entries: #3 Joe Morgan's crazy touchdown catch vs. Bucs #4 Malcolm Jenkins catches Vincent Jackson from behind #5 Ivory beast run vs. Falcons #6 Patrick Robinson's 98 yard INT return of Michael Vick #7 Lance Moore's Catch vs. Panthers #8 Patrick Robinson pushes Mike Williams Out of Bounds for the win #9 Blocked punt by Martez Wilson and recovery/TD by Courtney Roby #10 Devery Henderson's one handed grab
