WATCH: Johnny Hekker executes fake punt to perfection, Rams gain 28 yards

By Jesse Reed

Down by three points midway through the fourth quarter Sunday against the Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay got gutsy. He called for a fake punt on fourth-and-6, and Johnny Hekker pulled off the play beautifully.

Hekker found Josh Reynolds, who went 28 yards to keep the drive alive.

Five plays later, the Rams tied the game up on a field goal to make it 20-20. This play could end up being the difference in the game if the Rams can figure out a way to keep Kirk Cousins and Co. from scoring any more points in this one.
