Video: The Washington Redskins' terrible fake field goal play

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Things were pretty ugly for the Washington Redskins last night. Their offense was bad, their defense was bad and their special teams weren't special as they sustained a 45-12 drubbing at the hands of the New York Giants.

But perhaps the most embarrassing moment came when they tried to execute a fake field goal at the end of the first half while facing a 24-point deficit.

After the Redskins sent seven men in motion to the left side, Giants coach Tom Coughlin was forced to call a timeout because, well, they sent seven men in motion.

Still thinking that they were going to pull a fast one, Washington ran the play again. Holder Hunter Smith received the snap and threw up a prayer that was predictably intercepted.

I'm not a big X's and O's guy, but I think not having anyone to block for him hurt Smith's chances.

We'd all agree it was poorly executed and that it might not have been that well conceived. But, is this one of the worst trick plays you've ever seen?
