Last night, De'Anthony Thomas made one of the most explosive NFL debuts, returning his first punt 80 yards for a touchdown. DAT is just just one of those guys where every time he touches the ball, you know there's a chance for some ridiculous return. That was exactly the case on Thursday night against the Bengals.

On Friday during Philadelphia's preseason opener against the Bears, it was Josh Huff's turn to make some noise on special teams. Late in the second quarter with the game tied 14-14, Huff turned on the burners to give the Eagles the lead. It's also worth noting that this was Philadelphia's first kickoff return for a touchdown since 2008.

Oregon's rookies have made quite the splash in the first couple nights of preseason action. Here's to hoping it translates to the regular season when the games actually matter. On an unrelated note, here's a GIF of Chip Kelly....licking his headset?
