That’s right, folks, you just witnessed the ultra-rare double punt!
Originally, Dickson was flagged for the double punt but it was later determined that it was a legal play.
Here is the explanation of why it was legal, via @NFLOfficiating. The only problem is that Dickson looked to be past the line of scrimmage when he punted the second time.
You be the judge.
In #LARvsSEA, the punt was blocked and recovered by the kicking team. The punter kicks the ball again from behind the line of scrimmage. This is a legal kick and the result of the play was the ball was ruled down at the 11 yard line. pic.twitter.com/saAYrCKlzp
