I think it's because you aren't looking for mutant ninja turtles that you don't find them.

You can only try to block a kick at the line of scrimmage - it's been that way for some time. People used to ask 'if I get Manute Bol and stand him at the endline, can he try to swat away kicks'

He can try but, he will miss just like he did in the NBA.

There are plenty of players that could easily do it. There is a reason it's illegal.

This was actually done once in NFL history.. I'm at work, so I don't have access to the resources to find out who it was or when. Sorry.

That's why it's illegal. It happened in a game. Pretty sure it was the 60s or 70s that it happened, maybe even before that .

It was in one of those old 1980's history of the NFL books that kids had...or at least that I had.

I. Team A attempts a field goal from Team Bs 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes out of bounds in the end zone.

RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. During regulation play, postscrimmage kick enforcement gives a safety by penalty. In extra periods, enforcement of the 15-yard penalty is at the previous spot
and Team A retains possession.


II. Team A attempts a field goal from Team Bs 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes into the end zone and is recovered by Team A.

RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. The result of the play is a touchdown.

III. Team A attempts a field goal from Team Bs 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes into the end zone and is recovered by Team B.

RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. The result of the play is a touchback, safety.

IV. Team A attempts a field goal from Team Bs 30-yard line. A Team B player in the end zone leaps above the crossbar and bats the ball in flight. The ball goes into the field of play.

RULING: Foul for batting the ball in the end zone. During regulation play, postscrimmage kick enforcement gives a safety by penalty. The ball remains alive, and Team A may elect the result of the play. If Team A recovers, does not score and accepts the penalty, or if the play occurs in an extra period, enforcement is at the previous spot.


VII. Team A attempts a field goal, and B23, in the end zone, goes above the crossbar and catches the ball.

RULING: Legal play.

Update 2: But, what if you were up by three and could block the field goal attempt into the end zone and recover it yourself for a safety? Might be worth it still, no? (The game cannot end on a penalty, but then youd just have to defend a free kick return rather than a field goal attempt.)

Good post. I was pretty sure it was illegal but had no clue what the rulings were if it happened. Interesting stuff.

Field Goal Defense

The defense can try to block the kick only at the line; it cannot attempt to bat down a field-goal attempt at the uprights like a goalie. If the defense commits a penalty during the attempt that results in a first down, the offense can maintain possession of the ball or keep the three points and have the penalty assessed on the following kickoff

You can only block it at the line? What a dumb and totally random rule. I would love to watch guys back at the goal posts trying to jump and swat it down.

Oh, obviously didn't read the entire thread.

So do we know if the NFL is different? Now you are going to make me read the thread.

So is that a first from where they kicked? I like the NCAA rules.

Thanks for the links. It let me answer my last question.



According to the official NFL rulebook, the defensive team takes possession of the ball at the spot of the kick for all missed attempts beyond the 20-yard line. On missed attempts that come from inside the 20-yard line, the defense takes possession at the 20-yard line. After a successful field goal, the offensive team kicks off from the 30-yard line

So after reading the rules, you can "block" it at the goal posts, as long as you catch the football - I assume you have to come down with 2 feet in as well.

Just get one guy with another guy on his shoulders at the back of the end zone and hope the other team doesn't go all Brett Kern or Mike Scifres on you.
