This week, the Pittsburgh Steelers got crazy in an effort to break out of their listing 2-2 start. So in the second quarter against the Tennessee Titans, head coach Mike Tomlin called a fake punt. P Daniel Sepulveda executed it to perfection, throwing a nice pass to up-back Ryan Mundy (normally a free safety). Mundy took the play for a 33-yard gain. The Steelers cashed in with a Hines Ward touchdown that gave them a 14-3 lead en route to a 38-17 win over the Titans.
Tomlin said according to goerie.com, “We weren’t going to leave any bullets in the gun. It was important that we started fast and competed. I saw an opportunity there and took advantage of it.”
You can watch it below and see why the plan earns Sepulveda the honor of crazy kicker of Week 5.
