Who says you need to be a quarterback to throw touchdown passes?

Looking for a third quarter first down, Houston quarterback T.J. Yates throws the short pass to Cecil Shorts and instead of running with the ball Shorts stays behind the line of scrimmage and preps himself for his own pass. Before fans even have time to wonder whether or not Shorts can throw, the Houston wide receiver is targeting running back Alfred Blue who’s wide open and near the end zone for a 21-yard touchdown completion.

It’s all about the creativity.
