When a team throws the ball far down the field hoping one of their players can make a last second score to win the game it is called a Hail Mary pass. The term was first used by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1970's when Roger Stabauch threw a last second score to win a game and one of his fellow players called it a "Hail Mary" kind of throw.
