What is your favorite Jahvid Best play?

What play stands out to you as the most memorable of Jahvid Best's career?

The Detroit Lions released running back Jahvid Best on Wednesday, effectively signaling that his NFL career is over. Best hasn't played since the first half of the 2011 season because of concussion issues, and it's unlikely we will see him playing football anywhere again.

Best only actually played in 22 games with the Lions, but he had several memorable moments during his brief career in Detroit. Actually, he was responsible for my favorite Lions moment in recent memory:

Aside from the fact that this was an 88-yard touchdown run against the Chicago Bears, what made it so great was that it was on Monday Night Football. This was the game that established the Lions as a legitimate playoff contender, and they improved their record to 5-0 on that night. Essentially, the Lions were on top of the football world after this game, and Best had a lot to do with the win, as he rushed for 163 yards and a touchdown on only 12 carries.

What play sticks out to you as the most memorable during Best's time with the Lions?
