This is one of those plays that only happens because of how frigging cold it is in Minnesota. Seahawks punter Jon Ryan fumbled the snap on a routine punt, which could be attributed to him not wearing gloves like the majority of players. From there all he could do was attempt to make something out of nothing, which went poorly as he tried to hurdle a defender.
Not only did the Seahawks turn the ball over in amazing field position, but Ryan was shaken up on the play. He looked hurt as he walked to the sideline and during the next series the team was working on his nose -- trying to stop the bleeding.
The Vikings got a field goal from the ensuing drive and the Seahawks? Well ...

But Ryan returned and punted on the Seahawks' ensuing possession.
