Question for anyone who saw "Leatherheads"

Maybe I'm too tired to be watching a movie or just dense, but I have a question about the movie, "Leatherheads." The question is a spoiler, so be forewarned:

Spoiler:
I still don't understand how Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) got the Germans to surrender. He fell asleep, and then the Germans inadvertantly joined him, but he got everyone to surrender?

Can someone explain this to me in detail because I really feel like I'm missing something. Thanks in advance.

Re: Question for anyone who saw "Leatherheads"

If I recall correctly,
Spoiler:
the Germans confused him for a CO. When they heard him surrender, they followed suit.

Re: Question for anyone who saw "Leatherheads"

Spoiler:
The Germans, who had been fighting for many days and were tired and low on morale, mistook Rutherford for one of theirs, and when they heard him surrender, the fight went out of them, too, and they all surrendered.

They're talking about the backstory of one of the characters.

Which would have made for a better movie, BTW.

I've seen the movie, and it still confused me for a second.
