The offensive line is the most important part of the offense, keeping playmakers protected and helping them find the end zone.

While linemen take great pride in what they do, it is every lineman's dream to score a touchdown of their own. That is exactly what Taylor Lewan did for the Tennessee Titans on this trick play.

Usually when non-pass catchers are involved in a trick play to score a touchdown, they try to sneak out to the end zone where all they need to do is complete the catch for the score. However, this was not the case in Lewan's play, showing the Titans' trust in Lewan's athleticism.

As an eligible receiver on the play, Lewan faked the pass block, then set up for the screen in this beautifully designed play. Catching the ball behind the line of scrimmage after the fake worked to perfection, Lewan completed the catch and quickly turned upfield.

With only an interior defensive lineman to beat, Lewan got to the corner and ran in for the touchdown. This very well could be the most impressive touchdown reception by a lineman in NFL history.
