Sony Michel made the first huge offensive play of Monday night’s National Championship Game featuring Georgia and Alabama. He took a handoff on third-and-20, bolted to the right sideline and cut a corner, skirting the sideline like a prima ballerina.

He somehow managed to stay inbounds to convert the third down.

This had people all over Twitter with their jaws on the floor.

In the end, Michel gained 26 yards on this play to put the Bulldogs into field goal range. A few plays later, the ‘Dawgs put the first points on the board to take an early 3-0 lead.
