The Trick Play by an NFL Team That Even Had the Cameraman Fooled


On Sunday, the St. Louis Rams stunned the NFL world by beating the defending-champion Seattle Seahawks. One big reason was a trick punt return play that the Fox Sports commentator said even fooled their cameraman.

In the middle of the second quarter, the Seahawks punted to the Rams. Punter Jon Ryan is known to generally kick it to the left. The Rams knew that, and sent one person to that side.

The Seahawks coverage team bit, and started going that way, leaving the lone Ram -- Stedman Bailey -- an easy route to the end zone.

Later in the fourth quarter, the Rams pulled off a fake punt to seal the win.
