It was second and seven in the fourth quarter and the Riders were in desperate need of a touchdown.

Desperate need of any sort of offence, really, but a touchdown would have brought them within five points with time left on the clock to do more damage later.

The offence had been struggling, rotating between Brandon Bridge and David Watford seemingly at random, and something needed to be done.

Enter Charleston Hughes.

“They should have booed us – especially on the offence. It was terrible what we were doing,” he said in the locker room after the game.
