The Los Angeles Rams lined up to punt from their own end zone in Saturday’s Week 2 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, and the results were more disastrous than they could’ve possibly imagined.
It wasn’t like someone on the Colts broke through and blocked the kick, nor was it just a case of a bad snap or a fumbled catch from Rams punter Johnny Hekker. Nope.
The NFL’s official Twitter page described the bizarre scene at Lucas Oil Stadium as best as anyone could, as personal protector Nick Scott got hit in the arm with the snap, and the Colts took a fourth-quarter lead:

The good news for Scott? He may not be a total goat after all.
Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford shrugged off the adversity and promptly orchestrated a four-play scoring drive, finding Cooper Kupp for a 10-yard TD to put Los Angeles back up 24-21.
What a wild sequence of events!
