I'm told Toronto mayor Rob Ford is in the house. You'll know if you see an overweight fan running on field and getting chased by security.— Bucky Gleason (@TBNbucky) December 1, 2013
Rob Ford is wearing a Fred Jackson jersey. Or as the mayor calls him, Fred Crackson. #tooeasy— Robert Harding (@robertharding) December 1, 2013
Rob Ford is wearing my fantasy player's jersey, so I'm basically playing Rob Ford today.— John Gaudes (@johngaudes) December 1, 2013
Is there any bigger gap in character than between Fred Jackson and Rob Ford? Take the jersey off, Rob.— Matt Creenan (@mcreenan) December 1, 2013
As part of bringing the game to Toronto, the Atlanta Falcons have let mayor Rob Ford come up with the gameplan.— Matt (@FalconsM5) December 1, 2013
Canadian soldiers descend from the ceiling on ropes. Mild applause. They're probably here on a Rob Ford-related safety thing.— Bruce Arthur (@bruce_arthur) December 1, 2013
Perhaps the best part of Ford's outing was the fact he stole a singer's seat.
Rob Ford is sitting in my seat at the Bills game. He stole my seat. I don't know what to do.— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
I'm by myself. I gotta kick him out right? I mean I would kick anyone else out... Am I wrong?— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
The mayor stole my f@#%ing seat man!!— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
Got my seat back.— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
NFL team Twitter accounts were particularly brutal today...against their own team.
We’re scoreless after the first quarter. Who’s ready for more Jets action? #MIAvsNYJ— New York Jets (@nyjets) December 1, 2013
Darrius Heyward-Bey hasn't exactly lived up to being a high draft pick.

Heyward-Bey w/one of the most blatant drops you'll see. Even TY Hilton was impressed with that miscue.— Josh Katzowitz (@joshkatzowitz) December 1, 2013
During Adrian Peterson's monster day, he hit another milestone.
The Vikings had no idea what they were doing at the end of regulation and overtime, but they still won.
