What’s most amazing about this is Teddy Bridgewater basically took your favorite Turkey Bowl move and recreated it with a different outcome, a director’s cut of sorts.
He did not hit a small child walking unassumingly 100 yards away from the target, like you did that one time. You have the doctor’s bill to prove it. He hit his wide receiver in stride in the very back portion of the end zone making the frenzy looked almost planned. He had a small window to throw the ball, an even smaller window to complete the pass.
The result is a throwing motion that most second baseman use to casually throw out the one-hopper they just gloved. He is not a second baseman, though, and that pass traveled a quick 35 yards with a hearty wrist flick.
You’ve run this play in Madden before, scrambling with a blitz you did not expect. In this video game situation, you are either a) sacked b) the ball comes out of your hand as an incomplete pass even though it looked like a fumble or c) you throw a horrendous, Brian Kelly face-exploding pick.
You don’t do this. No one does this. It is physically impossible for someone to do this. There’s no possible way someone could finish this situation with a touchdown, let alone one that belongs on a poster for eternity. Teddy did this, though.
Was this a “Heisman Moment?” Nah, probably not, but categorizing a play like this is a waste of time. This was a Teddy moment and a damn good one.
And so we’ve reached the end, or at the very least the beginning of the end. Week 15 is here, which means you probably have strong takes about Ohio State versus the SEC. That’s great, but let’s talk gamblin’ instead.

Rivalry week is special, and not just because you can take leftover turkey from the fridge and consume it while placing the serving tray on your lap. That doesn’t hurt, though. Tradition is wonderful.
Week 14 is a glorious slate of football and we’re ready to break it all down, one point spread at a time.
