All the NFL teams have their own agenda for their respective games each week. Some game plans include trick plays.
Some head coaches decide to call one in a game. Most of the time, though, these trick plays are often just used for certain situations.
The New England Patriots used one of their trick plays on Sunday against the New York Jets. The play looked normal at first.
Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones threw a pass to Kendrick Bourne, who signed with the team in the off-season. What saved this play is that Bourne did not run towards the line of scrimmage.
Instead of running after the reception around the 30-yard line, Bourne immediately began the throwing motion. He hit Nelson Agholor, another off-season acquisition, who was wide open between two Jets defenders.
The double pass was executed to perfection. Bourne’s touchdown pass was credited for 25-yards.
The Patriots led 7-0 at that point less than three minutes into the game.
The broadcasters said that they saw the play during practice on Friday. It was the first pass attempt of Bourne’s NFL career.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
