Weird football plays

    Thought I'd seen just about everything in football. Last night I saw a punt that went for negative yardage on natural grass. Just wondering if any others can recall weird plays that they won't soon forget.

    There's a youtube video out there somewhere of a field goal that bounced a couple times on a crossbar and actually game to rest before trickling through.

    I do recall a prep playoff game that went into overtime and was decided on a field goal that hit the corner crossbar, sat there for at least three seconds before falling over.

    This isn't really a weird play, just really bad tackling by a team we cover.

    Team A's running back receives handoff in the backfield and is met by a Team B defender about five yards behind the line of scrimmage. RB makes first guy miss, then beats two more guys to the corner where he proceeds to break seven tackles on his way to the end zone.

    Team B is coming off a 10-4 season after making it to the state semifinals against Louisville St. Xavier last year, but this year doesn't look like it will be as successful.
