The Play of the Day for last week goes to Big Mike for hustling down the field to be the final piece of the puzzle to a pick-six play involving three players.
The play began with David making an over-the-shoulder pick off beyond the fifty yard line then taking it up field to the twenty before getting cornered by the swift defender. But Rick was trailing the play on the opposite side of the field so David threw a spiral to him.
Rick hauled in the the pitch and headed downfield but the defender was described as swift for a reason: He was and because of that swiftness, he cut the angle on Rick, too.
Big Mike, however, had the presence of mind to hustle down the field and was in position in the middle to catch Rick’s pitch back to him and waltz in for the score.
Honorable mention goes to Cody for being in position behind the defenders to collect with one hand an under thrown ball that was tipped to him with only green and the end zone left for him to conquer.
