Rams vs. Seahawks: Danny Amendola corrals a fake-field-goal touchdown pass from Johnny Hekker

Danny Amendola, as it turns out, is everybody's favorite St. Louis Rams wide receiver—even punter Johnny Hekker. Near the goal line, and appearing to go for the easy points, Jeff Fisher and the Rams called for a fake field goal, and Hekker found a wide-open Danny Amendola on the sidelines. The result: A two-yard reception and an easy touchdown. The Rams now have their first lead of the afternoon, going up 10-7 inside the two-minute warning of their wild game vs. the Seattle Seahawks.

The Rams' rookie punter has looked excellent doing his usual work, and while I'm not sure he should consider a future career as a backup quarterback, he proved that anybody, given an oncoming rush and a nervous desire to find their slot-receiver, can throw the ball to Danny Amendola.
