Watch Travis Benjamin’s blazing punt return TD again (and again)

All caveats apply about it only being pre-season, but that doesn’t mean that a highlight wouldn’t leave a lasting impression. The third pre-season game left plenty of lasting impressions of individual plays, but none moreso than Travis Benjamin finding pay dirt on a 53-yard punt return touchdown. Benjamin struggled a year ago while attempting to come back from his ACL surgery...

Photo: 9 Former Auburn Players Took A Cool Photo After Rams-Raiders Preseason Game

It must be pretty cool for former college teammates – or guys that played for the same college program at different times – to come together on the field after NFL games to reminisce and take pride in their collegiate ties. But rarely do these photos exceed five or six players, due to the difficulty of making an NFL roster, but a group of former Auburn players changed all of...

Odell Beckham Jr. trucks Darrelle Revis (Video)

Terry Collins didn't challenge double out of fear of HR
