Seattle Seahawks Safety vs Indianapolis Colts (GIF)

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks blocked a Colts punt that ended up being ruled a safety after a Seahawks defender chased down the batted kick in the endzone. The play could have and arguably should have been called a touchdown after the Hawks defender cradled the ball and slid in the endzone before going out-of-bounds.

What do you think? Was this a safety or a TD?

    YES It was a TD ! The Refs were HORRIBLE in this game- many, many calls were one sided , like playing eleven on seventeen !

      I thought so too. The Colts definitely got the home field calls.

    He should have knocked the ball back towards the goal line as two more seahawk players were trailing him. Even if the cols recovered it would have been a safety

      He could have but I don’t think he was aware that he had two Seahawks right behind him. Plus batting the ball in the endzone isn’t allowed and it would have resulted in a penalty.

    One of numerous bad officiating calls that cost the Seahawks Sunday’s match-up against a clearly inferior team.

      I wouldn’t call them inferior. They did beat us.
