The Kansas City Chiefs went deep in the archives for a red zone play against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 2020.
In the first quarter, on 4th-and-1 on five-yard line, the Chiefs ran a a trick play that featured four people in the back-field, including Patrick Mahomes. Clearly setting up for a running play, the four players then did a synchronized spin move, shifting where they were lined up.
The play was a direct snap to running back Damien Williams, who plunged his way to the first down, just short of the touchdown.
According to James Palmer of NFL Network, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said the Chiefs had taken the play from the 1949 Rose Bowl.
“I probably shouldn’t be giving this away,” Bieniemy said. “The Rose Bowl, Michigan vs. USC. And so, it’s just a play that we’ve been working on and wondering when we can polish it off.”

Mahomes ran in a touchdown two plays later for the Chiefs first score of the game.
Mahomes took home Super Bowl MVP, helping to rally the team from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win the game. Perhaps Bieniemy and his encyclopedic knowledge of offensive plays should get just as much credit.
