But, Young's TD run takes the cake:
Young escapes a collapsed pocket by spinning away from 3 defenders, proceeds to break 4 tackles and winds his way through an entire team on a 49 yard touchdown, stumbling into the end zone.
Yea, The Catch was an amazing play. But it was a play that had been practiced. Young's run was pure improvisation, turning a sack into a 49 yard touchdown.
Hearst's run was pretty beast too. Man, I loved that guy. Nothing but heart.
The stumbling into the endzone and then being smashed by multiple Vikings players jumping on top of him in frustration had me falling out of my chair laughing and still does, but the other thing about this play is the Lon Simmons call. It never ceases to just crack me up. He sounds like he's going to have a heart attack. I don't know if it rates up there among the best plays of all time, but NFL films did call it the best scramble of all time and it's got to be close to the most entertaining play of all time
