The Washington Football Team got very creative on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys, and it somewhat paid off for them.

In the second quarter of Thursday’s game, Washington pulled out a fumblerooski-type play. Alex Smith and J.D. McKissic combined for a play that sufficiently confused the defense enough to give the team a solid gain. Some even compared it to the famous “Annexation of Puerto Rico” play from “Little Giants.”

Washington ended up scoring a touchdown on the drive, so it’s safe to say things paid off.

Fun fact: Ron Rivera has done this before with a play based on that exact movie. It’s entirely possible he dusted it off for use here.
