SEATTLE (CBS) — Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan took a nasty-looking face-plant after attempting to hurdle a Vikings defender during the Seahawks’ wild card playoff game Sunday. Thankfully, he has a good sense of humor about the ordeal.
Ryan Tweeted this photo Monday morning:
After catching botched, low snap on Seattle’s own-25 yard line, Ryan decided to run for a first down, rather than punt. To be fair, this is the same punter who threw for a touchdown in last year’s NFC Championship Game — but this time things didn’t work out well.
Ryan’s brother, Steve, also joked about the play.
Ryan came up short of a first down, but the Seahawks ended up winning the game on a missed field goal from Vikings’ kicker Blair Walsh.
