The Philadelphia Eagles had “Philly, Philly” or “The Philly Special” in Super Bowl 53. The Kansas City Chiefs appear to have their iconic Super Bowl play from their win over the San Francisco 49ers.

“It’s going to be ‘Shift The Rose Bowl Right Parade,’” Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes told the huddle before a fourth-and-1 near the goal line.

The QB lined up in shotgun before spinning in a full circle — in synchronicity with the entire backfield — to the right. That theatrical shift allowed the running back to get a direct snap, and Damien Williams plunged forward for the first down and almost the touchdown.

The Chiefs included “Rose Bowl” in the name because the play is actually a ripoff from a play which Michigan ran in a 49-0 blowout in the Rose Bowl against USC — in 1948. Quite the throwback.

“You know what that game, that play comes from – if I’m not mistaken – a 1949 Rose Bowl (actually ’48),” Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. “I probably shouldn’t be giving this away. The Rose Bowl Michigan vs. USC. And so, it’s just a play that we’ve been working and wondering when we can polish it off. It was fun to watch. It was fun to watch. And those guys did a great job of executing it. I mean all that hard work and practicing that play for the entire season, it just worked and it paid off.”

Here’s a look at the two plays side by side.

Because “Shift The Rose Bowl Right Parade” didn’t score a touchdown, the play may not get a place in history like many of the other amazing Super Bowl trick plays. Still, it was a nice demonstration of creativity and history in the NFL’s 100th season.
