Heimerdinger wants to take an intermediate shot in the middle of the field, but the Cardinals blitz with linebacker Gerald Hayes coming up the middle and safeties from each side.

Result

Young reads the blitz and, with Hayes in his face, hits Cook short across the middle. Cook sprints left for a 17-yard gain and dives out at the nine.

YOUNG: "We had a great play call. Cookie ran a great route."
