Tune explained the play after the game and showed he was able to recognize the defense.
Tune sped up the snap count on the play.
“We actually went on two there, so we tried to draw the coverage with the first cadence,” he said after the game. “I knew that the safety to his side was blitzing, so right then and there I knew I had it. Snapped the ball and let Kaden run a good route and throw it to him.”
The result was a seven-yard touchdown pass that make the score 17-10, setting up the Cardinals’ last-minute touchdown drive that resulted in the last-second win.
