When it comes to Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell, there is no question about it that he is more than willing to roll the dice in order to help his team win a big game. On Sunday, against the 10-2 Minnesota Vikings, Campbell (and ST Coordinator Dave Fipp) dialed up a fake punt for C.J. Moore during the third quarter, and it worked to perfection. The fake gave the Lions a big first down, and they were eventually able to extend their lead to 21-7 with under six minutes remaining in the third quarter.
C.J. Moore pulls of insane fake punt for Detroit Lions
Take a look as the Lions roll the dice on 4th &7 from their own 26-yard line, and it pays off in a big way.
As you are about to see, the Lions end up picking up a huge first down on a 42-yard gain by C.J. Moore.
According to Detroit Lions PR, the Lions are now 6-of-7 on fake punt attempts since Dan Campbell took over as head coach.
