And Charlie Whitehurst is able to bait and evade Chris Harrington before outletting to Cameron Morrah. Morrah streaks right and nearly breaks a Gerald McGrath arm tackle. Break it, and he's in.

8. 3-4-TEN 4 (:32) (Shotgun) 6-C.Whitehurst pass short middle to 85-A.McCoy for 4 yards, TOUCHDOWN. WATCH HIGHLIGHT

Another subtle but solid play by Whitehurst: He reads linebacker Jamie Winborn up and left and just inside the goal. He reads Quinton Ganther running a swing. The second Winborn commits to covering Ganther, that is, Winborn shades every so slightly towards the left sideline, Whitehurst sees his opening and drills it into Anthony McCoy. Touchdown.
