The game was in hand when Erik Kramer handed the ball to Barry Sanders on 2nd-and-10 in the fourth quarter of the Detroit Lions’ playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys in January 1992. The Lions led 31-6 and were minutes away from their first playoff victory in 35 years.
Five yards into a run that began at the Cowboys’ 47-yard line, Sanders was surrounded. The First-Team All-Pro was literally surrounded by four defenders: Robert Williams in front, Tony Tolbert behind, Kenneth Gant to the right, and Jack Del Rio to the left.
Sanders evaded all four and, seven yards later, juked Ken Norton Jr. to the moon en route to his 17th rushing touchdown of the season and a 38-6 victory. You only need to evade one defender to score a victory with BetMGM’s new promotional game, 8-Bit Barry.
Pay homage to ‘90s retro video games and the Hall of Famer in a free-to-play game:
Playing as Barry Sanders on BetMGM.com or the BetMGM Sportsbook app, juke, stiff-arm, or spin your way into the end zone. If you get past the defender, you’ll receive one of the following:
- Bonus Bet
- First Bet Offer Token
- Parlay Boost Token
The prize(s) may be used on any sports betting odds and are not limited to NFL betting odds. You can play 8-Bit Barry each week of the 2021 NFL season for your chance to win.
