New Orleans Saints DT Kevin Wiliams blocked Panthers kicker Graham Gano’s point-after try, and linebacker Stephone Anthony returned it for the first two-point blocked extra point return in NFL history.
Anthony took the ball from right around the Panthers’ 20-yard line, and ran it all the way back to record two points. It put the Saints ahead 16–13 just before halftime.
This result was not possible prior to this year; a blocked extra point in past seasons had resulted in a dead ball, and no players could return it for a score.
