Randy Gregory is the first defender Duke makes miss, and then several more miss after that.

Duke does have a bit of a fumbling problem. This is something that can be fixed with proper coaching (Tiki Barber, Adrian Peterson).

Another fumble from Duke.

Another example of Duke out of the backfield, but I wanted to include this one as well because of what he does after the catch. He makes one defender completely miss, and then fights through two more to find the endzone.

Excellent vision by Duke in this example. His original lane was filled, so he bounced it to the other side. Making something out of nothing is his forte.

Duke makes a killing off of these misdirection and counter type plays. Once he gets out in the open field…good luck. And there is that stiff arm again.
