E21 93-94: Texas Stadium

Eyeshield 21 episodes 93-94 review

E21 94

The Devil Bats easily defeat the representative of Africa by a score of 28-0, with great touchdowns by Sena and Monta. Interestingly, those two are the only two players on the team who ever score touchdowns. You’d think other teams would have an easy time shutting them down if all they’ve got is two star players.

They then meet up with Panther’s pals and play some football with them. But Apollo, their coach, has still given up. Obviously, it’s up to Sena and the Devil Bats to get him to start liking football again.

So now it’s the championship between the Devil Bats and the Blizzards, the Russian team with Morgan as their coach. The Devil Bats take a 17-0 lead at the half, with one particular play that intrigued me. They are the first team in the history of football to pull off a “play-action field goal.” Hiruma fakes a handoff to Sena, then holds the football for a field goal by Musashi. The 50-yard kick is good, but never in the history of football has a team ever faked an offensive play and kicked a field goal. That’s something you’d see in rugby, but not American football.

In any case, early in the second half, the Blizzards have a new strategy: injure Sena. They hit him hard and give him a concussion. See, Eyeshield 21 is so relevant! Just like real life. But now, what do the Devil Bats do with one of their players injured?
