Cris Collinsworth, An NFL Broadcaster, Delights Fans With a Breakdown of the ‘double-cheek Push’
During the Philadelphia Eagles game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, NBC broadcaster Cris Collinsworth had an interesting breakdown.
Jalen Hurts, who was having a great game against the Packers at home, had his number called for a quarterback sneak on 4th-and-2 in the fourth quarter. Hurts received a strong push from two teammates to get the first down and continue the drive.
Collinsworth called the play a “double-cheek push” because his teammates’ hands were firmly on Hurts’ backside.
“This is a tongue-in-cheek push,” Collinsworth said, smirking in the background. “When he goes that way (hurts to the left), you sometimes only get one cheek. But that’s exactly what they do. They submerge beneath the surface and then attempt the double-cheek push, which always works.”

Tirico questioned Collinsworth’s decision to reveal the description to “all of America.”
Collinsworth simply replied, “yes.” The breakdown enthralled NFL fans.
The drive would end with an Eagles field goal, bringing the score to 37-23.
Hurts rushed for more than 100 yards in the first quarter. He is now the only quarterback in the last 30 years to have more than 100 yards rushing in a quarter, with 52 coming on the first drive of the game, which saw Kenneth Gainwell rush in from four yards out to put the game up 7-0.
