Another football question

    How do you annotate a blocked punt returned for a touchdown in the agate? There's nothing mentioned in my old-ass AP style guide.

    EDIT: Another one is on a safety, is it the person who is tackled, or the tackler, who is listed in the box score.

    On the safety, what happens if no one makes the tackle because the knee is down?

    Is it something like this?

    Team Angola -- Kenya fumbles snap, Angola team safety, 2:09.

    It's actually return of blocked punt, so it doesn't read like the return got blocked.

    Yeah...as soon as I posted that I noticed that could be a mistake.
