The film, titled “The Man Who Played Literally Hungry: Leon Lett and the True Story Behind His Infamous Thanksgiving Blunder” sheds new light on the potential cause of Lett’s uncharacteristic play that fateful night, which still haunts him 18 years later. The film is available at http://www.nfl.com/snickers.

The blunder occurred during a rare snow and sleet storm In Dallas. Leading the Miami Dolphins 14-13 with 15 seconds remaining in the game, the Dolphins lined-up for a 41-yard field goal attempt. The Cowboys blocked the field goal, but while his teammates began to celebrate, Lett attempted to recover the ball, slipped on the ice and allowed Miami to recover the muff on the Dallas one-yard-line. By touching the ball and then failing to hold onto it, Lett enabled the Dolphins to take possession and try another field goal with three seconds left on the clock, which they subsequently made to win the game.

“I have three rings, but I still wake-up in the middle of the night because of that play,” said Lett, who was a two-time Pro Bowler for the Cowboys. “Miami was 8-2, so Coach kept riding me all week about the need to play hungry. I thought he meant literally!”

After watching the film, viewers will have the opportunity to “forgive Leon” for playing literally hungry at http://www.nfl.com/snickers. If Leon can reach a total of 25,000 “forgives,” SNICKERS will honor him on the day of this year’s rematch between the Cowboys and Dolphins on Thanksgiving Day.
