Giants high snap leads to touchdown for Eagles

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Steve Weatherford needs to ask for forgiveness from his fellow punters.

The New York Giants had been pitching a shutout against the Philadelphia Eagles, until Steve Weatherford set back the "punters are people too" movement by 20 years.

It's a high snap that sails about 10 yards over his head, that much can't be blamed on Weatherford -- but why in the world didn't he just dive on the ball or kick it out of the end zone for a safety? Instead he elects to try the under-utilized "crab walk over the ball" method, which results in an Eagles touchdown.


Suddenly an easy victory doesn't look quite so easy. The Giants currently lead 15-7 with just over three minutes left in the game, and another touchdown might be enough to flip this game on its head.
