Down 3-0 late in the first quarter against the San Francisco 49ers, the Chiefs made a bold decision to go for it on 4th-and-1. They broke out a trick play where the four players in the backfield spun around in a synchronized move to throw off the defense. The snap then went straight to Damien Williams rather than Patrick Mahomes, and Williams rushed for a first down and just missed a touchdown. Kansas City later scored to take a 7-3 lead.

Where did the Chiefs come up with such a play?

Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said after the game that they were inspired by Michigan in the Rose Bowl in the 1940s.

Bieniemy thought it was the 1949 Rose Bowl, but it was actually the 1948 Rose Bowl that Michigan won 49-0 over USC. Michigan did not appear to do that exact spin, but they utilized tons of motion, shifting, fakes, and single-wing type of formations.

The trick plays worked in 1948, and they’re still working in 2020.

What a Super Bowl win means for Andy Reid's coaching tree .
In the aftermath of the biggest victory of their professional coaching careers, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy locked eyes with the team’s head coach, Andy Reid. This was Sunday, shortly after the Chiefs’ stunning 31-20 come-from-behind win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, and as the two stood on the stage in the middle of the field of Hard Rock Stadium, confetti all around them, the two quickly embraced in a moment that Bieniemy later described as surreal. “How about this,” Reid told Bieniemy with a grin.And it was right then, at that moment, that Bieniemy, 50, could tell exactly how much the victory meant to the old coach.
