Earl Thomas muffed a punt and the Packers turned it into a touchdown.
September 5, 2014, 1:20am

All-pro safety Earl Thomas is returning punts for the Seahawks this year, something he has not done as pro. He is off to a rocky start. late in the first quarter, Thomas tried to return a punt when he probably should have fair caught it. This risk was compounded when Richard Sherman, also playing special teams, helped his man into Thomas. He bobbled it and Green Bay picked it up and took possession. They soon drove the field and pounded it in with short yardage grunt John Kuhn.
