The Detroit Lions did something miraculous this past weekend. With a minute left in the game, they drove 80-yards down the field and scored the game-winning touchdown to complete a comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys.
After Calvin Johnson’s final catch of the day moved them down to the 1-yard line, Matthew Stafford ran down the field instructing his team to line up for the spike play. The Cowboys heard him and expected it, so when the Cowboys defense lined up, they just stood there not expecting a play. When the ball was snapped, Stafford just dove in for the game-winning touchdown.
“I was yelling that I was going to spike the ball,” Stafford recalled, via ESPN. “But their linebackers were just standing there.”
