Riley Cooper Was Hiding In The Endzone On The Touchdown That Was Called Back For An Illegal Forward Pass

This was quite the play. Riley Cooper took the ball 94 yards for a touchdown on a nifty cross-field lateral off a New Orleans kickoff. It would have essentially nullified a nearly six-minute, 70-yard drive and put the Eagles back within a score. Instead it was nullified as an illegal forward pass, which surely it was. But this all misses the greater point.

Look at that guy!—You can see him at the very beginning of the video, but even better at the 1:10 mark—It's like he's playing backyard commandos or trying to hide behind blades of imitation grass. Not only that—it almost worked!
