"LEVITRA PLAY OF THE YEAR" FINALISTS

Ahman Green, RB- Green Bay Packers 90-yard touchdown run in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys

With his team leading by the score of 34-10, Green Bay running back Ahman Green took a Brett Favre handoff, sliced through a hole and outran the Dallas Cowboys defense for a 90-yard score, the third-longest run in team history. Green recorded 163 yards on 15 carries and scored twice in Green Bay's 41-20 win.

Donovan McNabb, QB- Philadelphia Eagles: 60-yard scrambling pass in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys

With just over two minutes to play in the first half of their NFC East Division match-up with the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb spun away from a Dallas defender and sprinted to his right, only to find another defender in his path. He switched directions back to his left, chased by two more defenders, before finally heaving a pass 60 yards down the field to wide receiver Freddie Mitchell. The play set up a one-yard Brian Westbrook touchdown run to give the Eagles a 35-14 lead. McNabb finished with 345 yards and four touchdown passes as the Eagles went on to defeat the Cowboys, 49-21.

Ed Reed, S- Baltimore Ravens: 106-yard interception return for a touchdown in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns

With the Baltimore Ravens holding a 20-13 lead with under a minute to play and the Cleveland Browns threatening to score, Ravens safety Ed Reed picked off a pass in his own end zone and ran the length of the field for an NFL-record, 106-yard interception return for a touchdown. Reed intercepted the pass after it deflected off the hands of a Browns receiver. Reed's touchdown secured the Ravens' 27-13 victory over their AFC North divisional rivals.

Julius Jones, RB - Dallas Cowboys: Game-winning, 17-yard touchdown run in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks

With 32 seconds remaining in the game and his team trailing the Seattle Seahawks by three, Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Julius Jones burst through the line, faked a defender and sprinted to the endzone for the game-winning 17-yard touchdown. Jones helped the Cowboys to a 43-39 victory, finishing the game with 198 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Jerome Bettis, RB- Pittsburgh Steelers: 10-yard touchdown pass in Week 14 against the New York Jets

With the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets deadlocked at 3-3 early in the fourth quarter, Steelers running back Jerome Bettis took a handoff and ran right before stopping and lofting a pass to tight end Jerame Tuman in the endzone. Bettis, who has three career touchdown passes, also ran for a touchdown on the next drive as the Steelers locked up the AFC North title with a 17-6 victory over the Jets. Bettis, who ran for 57 yards on the day, surpassed the 13,000-yard mark for his career.
