Washington HC Ron Rivera Says ‘Fumblerooski’ Play Was Inspired By The Little Giants’ Annexation Of Puerto Rico

It appears that Washington head coach Ron Rivera is a big fan of the movie the “Little Giants.”

On Thursday during the team’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys, Washington successfully ran a variation of the “fumblerooski”.

After the game, Rivera spoke to the media and confirmed that the play was inspired by the classic kid’s movie “The Little Giants” and the annexation of Puerto Rico play that’s featured in the film.

Here’s a clip of the annexation of Puerto Rico play from The Little Giants for those who never watched the movie.
