Neil Rackers attempts the NFL’s first fair-catch kick in two years. www.sportaphile.com
well that was anti-climactic…
you have to admit…it was severely anti-climactic.
The fair catch free kick doesn’t have to be from the punt following a safety. It can be done after fair catching any punt.
well that was an anti-climax…
Fair Catch a punt (kickoff) after a safety.
Who returned it?
@ilikechiken2 when there’s a safety and they have to do a punt-kickoff if you fair catch it then you get a free kick from where the returner catches it.
wrong football guys
this aint sockers
Fail? You try making a 68 yard field goal.
by fair catching the previous “free kick” that resulted in the safety that was just earned
Wow ultimate fail lmaooooooo
faircatch a safety punt
after fair catching a punt, a safety kick, or an onside kick teams actually have the option of either running a normal play or trying a fair catch kick. the reason you don’t see it all that often is the ball has to be kicked from the spot its fair caught at, which the majority of the time isn’t close enough for a kicker to score. as of now only 5 fair catch kicks out of 21 attemptes have been successful in the nfl
Fair catch, kicked from spot it’s caught at
By calling fair catch on a safety punt.
From a safety I believe
Calling a fair catch on a safety punt return
just kick the fucking ball already!!!
on fair catch, the receiving team can either elect to put the ball in play by snap or elect to do a free kick. It is very rare that a team actually elects to do a free kick.
after you let up a safety
i laughed so hard
If you fair catch any kick. You can either snap the ball or take the fair catch kick. It’s only really worth it if there is only time for one play left (before a half or the end of the game) and your kicker has a decent chance to make it.
Not. Even. Close.
at the end of a half, if time expires while the ball is in the air, the receiver can call for a fair catch and their kicker gets an uncontested field goal attempt.
This would have been an awesome ending for the Super Bowl.
It could also be on a kick off…just has to be a fair catch
You get a free kick attempt after someone kicks the ball to you (punt or kickoff) and you call a fair catch. You can choose for a free kick, where the defence has to stand 10 yards back…Now please Thumbs up my comment for people stop asking….
sense when where there freekick attempts???
@KoarngeSound everytime you mention the cowboy’s god kills a kitten.
Anyone else notice if you watched the scores at the top the cowboys actually won a game?
after a fair catch, you’re entitled to a free kick at the field goal uncontested, it just rarely happens within range or within a situation where you’d want to.
If you make a fair catch on a punt you can attempt a free kick from where it was caught. So generally you will need the team to be really backed up, and have a bad punt to get even a chance of making a free kick
no one was blocking
This is a fair catch on the punt, then since there’s only five seconds in the half left Arizona elects to kick a field goal from the spot of the fair catch. If you miss like he did no biggy unless the other team catches it takes it to the house, or you make the field goal. It’s a rare play since making the field goal isn’t likely. Most teams elect to go with a running play since it’s going to be the last play of the half and you don’t want to throw a pick six.
its the second quarter not the fourth…
When a player calls a fair catch the receiving team can opt to kick a free kick
That was very disappointing…
nice kick his a little better than my sister
Why the FUCK can’t Fox Sports use this TV scoreboard anymore? I know I’m not the only one that hates that tiny-ass little corner scoreboard they use now. I have perfect eyesight and I still have trouble seeing the game clock (and sometimes the score) from across the bar, for example.
There was 5 seconds left on the clock, so I’m pretty sure they figured “why the fuck not?”
WELL OF COUSE HE WAS GOING TO MISS IT THE BEST ANYONE CAN DO IS 63 AND THATS WHEN YOU ARE NOT KICKING AT MILEHIGH STADIUM!!!!
It’s an old, rarely used rule…when a fair catch has been made, the receiving team has the option to take the ball at the spot (as most do) or attempt a free kick between the opponent’s goal posts for 3 points. We had a playoff game won last season on this very play. The fair catch was made on the leading team’s 30. The kick was made (40 yards in high school) and the kicking team won. An old coach…knew the rule. KR, Alabama High School Athletic Association official.
That was a waste
