Nuttiest Moments of Week 6: Fodder for the follies

 Perhaps fodder for a football follies DVD that's coming soon, here is an in-depth breakdown of the nuttiest plays of Week 6.

Fear in the shadows

The situation: After a Connor Barth 42-yard field goal puts the Buccaneers up 13-7, Michael Koenen lines up to kick off to Darren Sproles with 5:26 left in second quarter.

Things got a bit nutty when ... Koenen's kick bounces out of the back of the end zone for a touchdown, and Tampa Bay mascot Captain Fear mimics Sproles.


Merci Garcon

The situation: The Colts, down 20-17, face a first-and-10 from their own 33-yard line with 2:36 left to play in the game.

Things got a bit nutty when ...Curtis Painter connects witih receiver Pierre Garcon for a short pass play, but Garcon fumbles the ball after being hit by the Bengals' Reggie Nelson. The ball conveniently bounces into the hands of Carlos Dunlap, who runs 35 yards for a Bengals score.


Introducing the Raiders' top fantasy QB

The situation: The Raiders, sporting a 17-7 lead, line up for what appears to be a 52-yard field goal attempt for Sebastian Janikowski.

Things got a bit nutty when ... Holder Shane Lechler takes the snap from center, and instead of setting the ball down on the turf for Janikowski's boot, pulls up to pass to a wide-open Kevin Boss for a 35-yard touchdown play.


Fumble soup

The situation: With the score tied at 7-7, the Raiders face a second-and-13 from their own 38-yard line with 30 seconds remaining in the first quarter.

Things got a bit nutty when ...Jason Campbell scrambles for nine yards, but fumbles the ball without getting touched. Browns defensive back Mike Adams recovers.


Tale of two Jims

The situation: The Lions' last desperate attempt to remain unbeaten falls to the Ford Field FieldTurf when Titus Young fumbles after receiving a lateral from Calvin Johnson.

Things got a bit nutty when ...49ers coach Jim Harbaugh meets Lions coach Jim Schwartz at midfield for the traditional postgame coaches handshake. An over-exuberant Harbaugh slapped Schwartz's hand, and that set off a wild postgame fracas between the two teams.
