LOOK: Michael Dickson saves Seahawks with running punt after blocked kick in crazy sequence of events

If there was anything to assistance Pat McAfee’s “For The Brand,” Seattle Seahawks punter Michael Dickson definitely showed his worth. Dickson managed a highlight-reel play on an obstructed punt throughout Seattle’s 26-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. 

With the Seahawks tracking 16-7 late in the 3rd quarter, Dickson had his punt obstructed, which triggered a live ball deep in Seahawks area. Running for the football, Dickson selected it up with one hand and removed to the left sideline attempting to make a play. Once Dickson lacked space, he booted the ball a 2nd time for 68 backyards to the Rams’ 11-yard line. 

Dickson had the ability to punt the ball for a cross country thanks to no Rams gamer remaining in position for a return. The busted play benefitted Dickson, as the ball simply took a bounce on the grass for about 20 backyards prior to lastly stopping at the 11-yard line. Ugo Amadi had the ability to down the ball as Dickson was commemorating.

“I don’t have the brain power to be able to explain it,” Rams head coach Sean McVay stated about Dickson’s punt after the video game. “Basically what happened was, because he kicked it behind the line of scrimmage (and) they reviewed it in New York, they said his foot was still on the line of scrimmage — so they said he can do that. I guess you learn something every night.” 

A flag was tossed, however there was no charge for Dickson punting the ball — considering that it was a live ball. The “double punt” will reside in Seahawks tradition, no matter the outcome.
