With just under 13:00 remaining in the third quarter of Sunday’s Week 6 game, Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum could be heard yelling out, “kill, kill” as the Miami Dolphins defense came set ahead of a second-and-short.

Keenum had audibled out of a called run to the right side in favor of a pass play, but veteran running back Adrian Peterson was having none of it. His football instincts felt something different from Keenum’s, so he called out to the quarterback to audible back.

“Reload, reload,” Keenum could be heard saying.

At the snap, Keenum handed the ball off to Peterson, who darted toward the right side of the line where he was immediately met by several defenders. However, in Hall of Fame fashion, Peterson scratched and clawed his way to the first down.

After the game, Peterson was asked specifically about that play, but dismissed the situation as little more than a miscommunication, indicating that the coaches called for the original play to run from the sideline and he was just making sure Keenum was on the same page.
