Blount's bulldozing run vs. Packers wins Pizza Hut NFL Play of the Year



Despite a dismal season for the Bucs, running back LeGarrette Blount's memorable 54-yard run against the Packers netted one post-season award.

Blount's run, in which he plowed through six Packers defenders on his way to a touchdown, was named the Pizza Hut NFL Play of the Year.

The play was chosen over the touchdown reception by Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson, who somersaulted into the end zone. Incidentally, Simpson was recently indicted on drug trafficking charges.

Blount rushed for 107 yards against the Packers but the Bucs lost 35-26.
