I even, you know, listened to announcers say, "There's no way they're kicking this field goal." Well, it's the Super Bowl?
It was a gut call. We all have gut reactions in life-- because I know this play is going to work to give us six points. That's what we need right now in this game,
I just felt the huddle. I felt the field. It was all a disguise and deception to make the defense sort of step back and say, "What are they doing?"
Snap to the running back, lateral to the tight end, tight end rolls out and throws it to the QB that is in the flat.
But I remember when I was going out to the right, the end was a little wider than we had sorta prepared for...
So I got over there, and I just paused and looked back for a second. And then once I felt him move inside a little bit, I knew I had it. There's no one around me. Time's sort sorta is in slow motion.
You can see me really just look the ball in right here to the catch point and then just tuck it. I didn't have a end zone celebration. I wasn't really preparing for it. So I think I just screamed. I'm just really grateful I didn't drop it.
And it ended up being a beautiful play that ultimately gave us six points in one of the greatest games ever.
