Espresso Logo By Chris Suppa of Espresso | Slide 2 of 21: Whenever laterals are involved in a football play, a lot has to go right, and the Tennessee Titans got every last bit of luck to make the Music City Miracle happen in the 2000 AFC Wild Card playoff game. ESPN reports that the “home run throwback” play call worked to perfection, as fullback Lorenzo Neal fielded the Bills kick, lateralled back to tight end Frank Wycheck, who found wide receiver Kevin Dyson across the field, and he got the blocks he needed to score the game-winning touchdown. Tennessee eventually made it all the way to the Super Bowl, but even if the Titans’ luck ran out in that game against the Rams, they’ll always have this play.Watch video on YouTube
