Super Bowl LVII Pizazz: FanDuel $3,000 No-Sweat Bet
Pittsburgh Steelers fans remember it fondly. Antwaan Randle El taking a reverse hand-off from Willie Parker, working to the other side of the field, and launching a beauty of a touchdown pass to fellow wideout Hines Ward in Detroit. Something of the same sort could happen in Super Bowl LVII, and FanDuel Sportsbook has special odds for that set at +2000.

Along with Randle El, there have been four other non-quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl, as recently as last year. The feat only occurred three times in 40 years, but twice in the past five. Running back Joe Mixon connected with Tee Higgins for Cincinnati last February and, in 2018, Philadelphia tight end Trey Burton cemented his place in history with the “Philly Special.” Former Rams running back Lawrence McCutcheon had an air strike against the Steelers in 1980. Two years earlier, fullback Robert Newhouse floated a score for Dallas.

Pull the Rabbit Out of the Hat in Super Bowl LVII?
Defensive tackle Dontari Poe was the last non-quarterback to notch a passing touchdown for the Chiefs, seven years ago. Six others have thrown passes in head coach Andy Reid’s decade-long tenure — most recently punter Tommy Townsend on a fake field goal in Week 3 against Indianapolis. In Nick Sirianni’s two years steering the ship for the Eagles, only one non-quarterback has attempted a throw. Worth noting, that player — Greg Ward — was a signal-caller at the University of Houston.
Furthermore, Reid has deployed a non-quarterback to put the ball in the air only once in his head coaching career, that being when Travis Kelce hit Byron Pringle for a two-yard score in last season’s Wild Card matchup against the Steelers. Does Reid he take the ball out of the hands of Patrick Mahomes and try some trickery? Maybe someone other than Jalen Hurts puts the ball in the air, too.
All things considered, you never know what will happen on the sport’s brightest stage. Make sure you don’t miss out if a non-quarterback tosses a score in Super Bowl LVII. Bet on the prop or any others with FanDuel.
