A double-block from Jeff Dugan
By Kevin Seifert
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- How did Percy Harvin race 17 yards untouched through the middle of the Green Bay Packers defense for a Minnesota Vikings touchdown? Replays showed that fullback/tight end Jeff Dugan took out two interior defenders to clear the way and tie the score here at 7.
The Vikings ran what looked like a trap play, and the delayed handoff allowed Dugan to get through the middle of the line. He engaged Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk, pushed him into safety Charlie Peprah and paved the way for Harvin.
Sometimes the player you've never heard of is the one who makes the biggest contribution to a play working.
