Welcome Back NFL! Here Is A 103-Yard Kickoff Return For A Touchdown (Video)
The NFL is officially back, as ten teams took to the field last night during five pre-season games. Not only did fans across America finally get to see their favorite teams suit up and step back onto the gridiron, but they also got to familiarize themselves with some of the new rules instituted by the league for the upcoming season.
One of those new rules involves moving the spot of the kickoff up from the 30-yard line of the kicking team to the 35-yard line. It is intended to limit the number of kickoff returns, thus limiting the number of injuries. And while many fans felt that it would mark the end of exciting kickoff return touchdowns, San Diego Chargers’ return man Bryan Walters proved us all wrong with the following 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks last night.
Great to have you back football. We all missed you dearly.
