Sean Payton Stole Matt Nagy’s Trick Play to Score a Touchdown

Chicago Bears

Someone should’ve seen that play coming from a mile away. Between substituting in Jameis Winston, to his lining up wide, the tells were all there — and the Bucs blew a coverage.

Most importantly, the receiver didn’t blow the catch.

Sigh. I guess that’s how it’s supposed to work.
