NFL JERSEYS
make out who was running routes and making plays. But there was Dan Marino and the "Marks Brothers," Mark Duper and Mark Clayton, lighting up Miami and the NFL in the 1980s. And there was, as Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said, "Some 'Crazy Legs' guy, practicing hard. It was practice film. Some dude in the '50s."

That Jose Mourinho felt the need to lift up a basket of drinks bottles and smash it to the floor when Marouane Fellaini scored his stoppage-time winner says everything about how the game went.
