Rogers may have been trying to do some recreation of theMusic City Miracle— the famous play that occurred in the 2000 AFC wild-card playoff game that saw Frank Wycheck throw a lateral across the field to Kevin Dyson on a kickoff. Dyson would run the ball for a touchdown to win the game.

The play on Monday night was not that.

Rogers clearly threw the ball forward and was lucky it wasn’t intercepted and taken the other way. The Titans were flagged on the play for throwing an illegal forward pass.

The Bills took enjoyment in adding to the trolling on social media.

According to ESPN, the initial plan was for Dyson to run out of bounds if he was met by any Bills defenders during that playoff game more than 20 jare terug. But when the wide receiver only had kicker Steve Christie in his way, all bets were off.

When Christie went down, everything just went silent. I can remember thinking, ‘Should I get out of bounds?’ but then I was like, ‘This is it,’ and it was smooth sailing,” Dyson told ESPN in 2020.
