Babin pulled away from a third down play carrying a clump of dreadlocks from the head of Cardinals running back Andre Ellington. In what must be one of the oddest sports images of the year, Babin held them the dreads up in mid-air as if they were a trophy before tossing them on the ground.

Ellington reassured fans after the game that his locks would recover.
"Hair is all good. Nothing serious. Look worse than it really was. S/o to the dread heads! Will get it stitch back in. Birdgang got the win!" he tweeted.
Mark Dalton, the Cardinal's vice president of media relations, tweeted proof that Ellington would get his hair back.
