Super Bowl Xxi : Notebook

January 26, 1987|CHRIS DUFRESNE | From Staff and Wire Reports

Center Bart Oates had a great view of the successful fake punt play the Giants' executed in the third quarter.

The Giants moved out of punt formation, with reserve quarterback Jeff Rutledge lining up behind Oates.

"Their linebackers were five-yards deep," Oates said of the Broncos. "They couldn't stop us."

And they didn't. Rutledge, on a quarterback sneak, gained two yards on the play for a first down, leading to the Giants' go-ahead touchdown.
