George Kittle scores 2nd SNF TD via perfect flea-flicker
George Kittle is in action on Sunday Night Football with the San Francisco 49ers, and he’s off to a fantastic start to that rivalry game against the Dallas Cowboys. Though Kittle doesn’t have a lot of catches, he’s made the most with a pair of first-half touchdowns in the game.
The second was a thing of beauty, coming off a perfectly executed flea-flicker from 38 yards out. He was behind the last level of the defense when Kittle hauled in a pass from Brock Purdy and rolled for the score.
PURDY TO KITTLE AGAIN ON THE TRICKERY 💯

Kittle also scored on the game’s opening drive. That play simply involved Kittle working back across the field as Purdy scrambled out of the pocket. The defense lost track of the tight end and it wound up being an easy pitch-and-catch for the score.
