The first thing to notice is the stellar return from Robinson.
Secondly, we have to commend not only his Eagles’ teammates for blocking well, but also for not committing any penalties. Generally, the runners changing direction is an easy way to draw a block on the back or hold. That did not happen.
The touchdown an ensuing PAT from Jake Elliott tied the game at 7-7.
