Im just finishing watching the Cowboys put a hurt on the NYG 36-31...And I dont think I saw one kickoff run out of the end zone.

I know they are trying to reduce injuries, but no kickoffs run backs really sucks. Might as well not kickoff and Just spot the ball on the 20.

How bout you all...did y'all see any kickoff run backs today? this rule needs to be rethought.

I'm with you on this. There was only one kickoff brought out of the endzone during the Vikings/Lions game and that one was from deep in the endzone and I believe the returner got bored. Where he caught it he shouldn't have attempted to run it out.

It's turning into a joke.

One kickoff should not have been brought out... And the returner agreed.

Caught the ball in play. Backed into the end zone and took a knee. Safety for the Steelers.

In general, I agree. Kickoffs are pretty lame. Hope it changes back.

Without a kickoff, we wouldn't have had this amazingly dumb play to talk about today, though!

Sunday’s first scoring play was this weird, boneheaded safety | For The Win
