  [Jerricho Cotchery](/player/jerrichocotchery/2506004/profile) for his first with the 
  [Jets](/teams/newyorkjets/profile?team=NYJ). 
   With their kicker out of the game with an injury,

   Michael Turner breaks through the

  [Falcons](/teams/atlantafalcons/profile?team=ATL) debut for the runner known as "the Burner." 
   Roy Williams does his best to keep his

   The

   Seeing a 6-foot-6, 230-pound QB scrambling for a 38-yard TD is a surprise, but it wouldn't be if you saw
