The Super Bowl is currently in progress and the Philadelphia Eagles went into halftime with a 10-point lead.
That big lead is all down to Doug Pederson's imperious play-calling through the first two quarters of the biggest game of the year, with the Eagles head coach effectively out-coaching the legendary Bill Belichick so far.
This was shown by the incredibly ballsy fourth-down play that Pederson drew up with less than a minute left in the first half that worked perfectly. And it involved a throw to Nick Foles, yes a throw TO the quarterback.
Let's break down the play. Foles lines up under center and everything looks normal. He comes to the line of scrimmage to make a call to his lineman but then lines up next to his right tackle - as an H-back.
The ball gets snapped directly to running back Corey Clement - who in turn flips it to Trey Burton on a reverse. Foles - as the H-back - runs out of the backfield into wide open space - and is found by a Burton pass for an easy touchdown.
It was an incredible call by Pederson and it came out of nowhere, taking many viewers on social media by complete surprise.
If the Eagles win this, then Doug Pederson deserves endless plaudits.News Now - Sport News
