Seattle Scores TD on Fake Field Goal

The Seahawks scored their first touchdown on a nice bit of trickery on a fake field goal.

The Seattle Seahawks almost had a touchdown on third-and-ten from the 19 but Marshawn Lynch couldn't hold onto the ball, so they lined up for the field goal. However! They faked it and the punter/holder Jon Ryan took the snap, ran out to the flat, and lofted a pass to offensive tackle Gary Gilliam. The rookie caught it and Seattle's first touchdown is from the punter to a rookie tackle. Obviously.
