    It's a pretty hazardous play, and you need to be pretty certain you can execute it, because the failure to do so could lead to a turnover. You get about 1 second.

    Yup. Kasay kicked it out of bounds after the Panthers tied it up. Very nice of him.

    I remember this was mentioned in Adrian Peterson's rookie season!

    It was a KO and he took the return and the momentum took him OoB! The announcers then said that if he had took a step OoB and then caught it, the ball would be on the 40 and not the 6!
