The "Great Drake Escape". I like it.
Eagle/Fouts are doing Sunday's game as well. Fouts saw the "Hook and Lateral" play back in '82.

CBS’ Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts are working Sunday’s Dolphins game, a week after calling the Miami Miracle. Eagle had a great call of the final play: “This will end it, or will it?... Oh look out! [Rob] Gronkowski didn’t have the angle!.. Touchdown, Kenyan Drake. A miracle!… A lateral heard round the world! Unimaginable!”
Eagle said by phone that he was happy with the call and happy “that I was in the moment. That’s part of the objective. You go through a mental checklist. Are you accurate, are you coherent and did you convey the emotion of the moment? That’s all you hope for. You can’t prepare for those kinds of moments. These plays live on forever. As an announcer, there is no second take, no going back and editing yourself. You have to live with what the soundtrack says forever.”
If there’s one thing he could have added? “Now you have time to think about it, the Great Drake Escape makes a lot of sense,” he said.
