NFL Week 10 as told by Twitter: Bengals' Hail Mary blows up Twitter
Andy Dalton spent the first 59 minutes of his Week 10 game toiling in mediocrity, but one Hail Mary temporarily bailed out the Bengals against the Ravens.
Until NFL teams come up with a better way to score from midfield with two seconds on the clock, quarterbacks will continue to throw Hail Marys, and Twitter will erupt when they miraculously connect with their wide receivers.

However, the Bengals losing in OT after the Hail Mary is the MOST Bengals thing ever...

Green Bay is down to playing something called a "Scott Tolzien" at quarterback.
Scott Tolzien is the Packers QB. Someone get Aaron Rodgers some antler spray or something pronto.— Melissa Jacobs (@thefootballgirl) November 10, 2013
Worth mentioning again, Jordy Nelson is the Packers' 3rd QB— Acme Packing Company (@acmepackingco) November 10, 2013
Richie Incognito tried to tell his story today on national television. Twitter users didn't react too kindly.
If I'd slept last night at a Holiday Inn Express, I'd analyze Incognito as a textbook megalomaniac narcissist. He believes what he says.— Gregg Doyel (@GreggDoyelCBS) November 10, 2013
Biggest story of the week in NFL is Tony Dorsett diagnosis. Not story in Miami. NFL pr might be secretly happy so little today about Tony— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) November 10, 2013
