but pretty sure that part wouldnt pass mustard in terms of getting out of the rules committee and the old cheap shots on a kneel down can cause injuries.
There have only been 2 ever, I believe. One was for the Vikings against the LA Rams in 1989, a blocked punt after the first possession that probably should have been a defensive TD but for poor handling and the ball going out the back of the end zone, hence a safety. Then in 2004 the Bears sacked the Titans QB in the end zone on the first possession.
