Cunningham's 95 Yard TD Pass to Barnett
Randall Cunningham’s diverse skill set was on full display during one special sequence on the afternoon of December 2, 1990. Facing the 9-2 Bills on the road, the 7-4 Eagles trailed 24-9 in the second quarter and had the ball on their own 5. Then Cunningham delivered some magic: He dropped back into his own end zone, looking downfield for receivers but without much luck. Bearing down on him was Bruce Smith, that season’s Defensive Player of the Year. Cunningham acrobatically ducked away from Smith, then – still in the end zone – sprinted to his left. He gathered himself and chucked the ball a mind-boggling distance, all the way into Bills’ territory, where it was caught by a leaping Eagles wideout, rookie Fred Barnett. With long, galloping strides Barnett outran the Bills’ secondary for a 95-yard touchdown. The Eagles would lose the game 30-23, but that effort by Cunningham was among his finest in a season in which he threw for 3,466 yards and 30 touchdowns, and nearly reached the 1,000-yard rushing mark.
