Nice Work, Washington
I don't think you'll see a trick play work this well the rest of the season. This is the Washington Savages, starting in a long field goal look, sliding it to a punt look, and finally having punter Hunter Smith heave across the field for a very unlikely and momentum stealing touchdown. The thing that this highlight doesn't show is that the Savages kind of tipped their hand--they came out, lined up the Field Goal, and then did the first half of the shift, into the punting formation. Then they kind of freaked out and called time out. But Denver still reacts to the shift (seeing it a second time) with a good deal of confusion. Regardless, awesome.
