Juke (football move)

A Mack Brown juke depicted.

A juke is a move in most forms of American football used to evade a tackler by deception, and thus without need of a stiff arm.[1] A typical juke involves a ball-carrier faking as if he will run one way, then planting his foot and running the opposite.[2][3]
