VIDEO: Santana Moss Catches Touchdown On Double-Reverse Throw

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has been waiting a long time to do something wacky, and he finally struck early in the second quarter against the New England Patriots. In what is probably the play of the year for the Redskins, Shanahan drew up a double-reverse play that ended with Brandon Banks throwing a 49-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss to put Washington up 17-14.

A couple notable things about this play.

  • Banks' pass to Moss was underthrown, but Moss was so wide open that it didn't matter.
  • According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan, this was Banks' first offensive snap of the entire season. We're in Week 14, mind you.
  • The key block on the play was thrown by none other than Grossman himself. It wasn't much of one, but he held up a Patriots rusher just long enough to give Banks time to throw.

What a play.
