seahawks-eagles

As the Philadelphia Eagles rolled into Seattle on Sunday, they wouldn’t have guessed that backup quarterback Trevone Boykin would line up as a running back for a play and that star wideout Doug Baldwin would be the most accurate passer of the day. 

But football is all about trickery, isn’t it? Play action, false counts, pump fakes — all a part of the game that we devote an entire day of the week to.

With 2:34 left in the first quarter of the football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks, Bradley Pinion of the Niners booted a beautiful-looking punt 61 yards downfield in what looked like a perfect kick to pin Russell Wilson and company deep in their own territory. Taking an Emerald City bounce, the ball eventually rolled and rolled and rolled before lightly kissing the pylon, resulting in a touchback to the Seattle 25.
