Jet's Brad Smith Returns Kickoff Minus A Shoe

The New York Jets were definitely thankful for their wide receiver Brad Smith. In the Thanksgiving Day game against the Cincinnati Bengals, he scored two touchdowns. In one touchdown run, he sprinted to the end zone wearing only one shoe after the other popped off.

In last night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, he scored two touchdowns, and the last one earned him the name Shoeless Brad by an ESPN blogger.
