The 30 Best Moments From The 2013 Regular Season

We’re closing out the year with a gallery of the 30 best moments from the 2013 regular season. These are either standout plays, hilarious screwups or really anything that made us smile in the regular season. Wide-ranging criteria, to be sure. I didn’t bother to rank them because I’m lazy and there would be endless disagreement. No one wants to fight on New Year’s. Let’s just be happy and drunk.

Richard Sherman gets down with the cheerleaders

Pretty ideal way to celebrate a pick-six.

Dolphins field goal stopped by holder's face

Philip Rivers manic celebratory woots

Marshawn Lynch destroys Darnell Dockett

Jon Gruden kettlebell WOD

Sean Payton got really into the CrossFit in the past year. That inspired Jon Gruden to terrify Mike Tirico by doing kettlebell exercises in the booth. It made no sense, involved scattered energy and was potentially destructive, making it the perfect Gruden thing.

RG Hurts When I Pee

Jaxson de Ville's suffering

Thank goodness the Jags ended up winning a few games this year. Not sure their mascot would have survived any money weekly masochistic stunts while they were still winless.

Ice Up, Son

Truly the most memorable catchphrase of the season, thanks to Steve Smith shittalking Aqib Talib. I’m sure it will be overused by this time next year, but for now “Ice Up, Son” is still great.

Haslam's supervillain laugh

haslaugh

It’s easy to forget in the wake of recent events that the Browns had a fleeting glimmer of hope at one point this season. They were actually in first place in their division for a few days. That was enough to get Jimmy Haslam cackling like a mad man. You would be too if you did something to land in prison but instead got to own a football team.

Dicktackle

2013 also saw great leaps forward to tackling innovation.

Giovani Bernard had the run of the year

giotd

And yet the Bengals still never manage to use him enough.

Loogit That Blubber Fly

Brandon Mebane, sharing the gift of his bounteous gut with the world.

Raiders DC flipping off the refs

dcfing

Let’s hope Jason Tarver stays with Oakland. Based on this alone, he certainly belongs.

Phil Simms ballhandling seminar

simmfum

Perhaps the most bizarrely robotic thing on an NFL broadcast: when CBS decided the nation needed a demonstration on ball carrying style by Phil Simms in the middle of a game.

Dolphins also bad at telling if fields goals are good

miamas

Buttfumble 2

genofum

A worthy followup to the timeless classic. Wonder where Geno inspiration to make a sequel?

Oh right.

2013 Giants In One GIF

simulhurr

With such impressive synchronized anguish, you wonder why this team wasn’t better this year.

Jimmy Graham: Destroyer of Uprights

grahamup

“OF COURSE HE CAN ONLY DO IT IN A DOME” – troll media

Knowshon's elite tear ducts

knowcry

John Fox is busy trying to find a way to weaponize this talent.

Kraken

Like everything, Greg Hardy dominated player introductions this season. Hailing from Hogwarts, he kills cereal without a spoon.

Brady NOOOOOOOO

The game audio picks up Brady screaming NOOOOOO when a pass rusher breaks free at him. It’s not a reaction I couldn’t see myself having, yet it’s still hilarious it’s Brady.

Brady tackle

bradytackle

Oh wait, Tom Brady pretending like he was even going to tackle someone was even better.

Best Harbs flipout

sheet

You could have an entertaining gallery of just Jim Harbaugh shitfits. I like that the playsheet is able to suppress this one.

My referee bro

palmerpound

If this were any team but the Cardinals, this would produce conspiracy theories about the refs helping them win.

Stafford doop face

staffphi

A banner year for Stafford doop face, but that there are any bad years for it.

No one wants help Rivers

riverseagles

Please, only RGIII gets helped up by opponents.

Fan cheerleader

dancefan

Cheerleaders: not just for ogling anymore. You can also mock them!

No one fives Brady

bradyfive

It’s been a tumultuous year for Tom Brady high fives. At one point, no one wanted to five him, possibly because he’s spent the whole season screaming at his receivers. Then Brady got fives after making silly faces. Then all of a sudden, no one wanted to five Brady again.

Andy Reid's big locker room entrance

Andy Reid getting a big red jacket was really a great development for Andy Reid jokes.

Rob Ryan hears Legs 'n' Eggs has been outlawed

robguh

Rob Ryan usually ain’t sweating a lot in life, but losing a lead in the last minute to the Patriots is enough to make him the saddest sack around.
