Default What would happen if a player came off the sidelines and tackled a player?

Let's say Terrell Owens jukes Champ Bailey at the Broncos 25 yard line and is headed straight for a touchdown and then, out of nowhere, Chris Kuper comes off the sideline and tackles Terrell Owens at midfield.

Do they award TO a TD?

15 yard penalty and Kuper is thrown out the game?

What happens? Anyone know.

That's a good Question.I think its a 5 yard Penalty and Ejecting and the Refs can decide if they want to reward the other team with a TD.I'm not sure Tho Ive seen this Question in a different Board a long time ago.

How about if a coach comes off the sidelines and tackles the player? (I seem to recall Bill Cowher almost doing that during a game once).

It's happened before in the 50's or 40's the refs awarded a TD.

It has happened but in college football, in the Rose Bowl like in the 1940's but I can't remember all the details, there is film of it, it's quite odd to see.
