You’ve probably already made the connection between Jay Cutler’s five-yard, helicopter-style rushing touchdown against the Detroit Lions yesterday, but here are the two plays on videotape.
Elway’s scamper was obviously the more important play, coming in the midst of the Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl XXXII victory over the Green Bay Packers. But, I dare say that Cutler’s was much more impressive, as he was able to get more elevation and withstand a more powerful collision. On the other hand, his clip doesn’t have the voiceover work of Alec Baldwin.
Which of these two is the better football play?
