Travis Benjamin's punt return could be worst in history
Travis Benjamin made a decision to run backwards after catching a punt and ended up scoring a safety for the Patriots.
Travis Benjamin's punt return against the New England Patriots could go down as one of the worst in NFL history.
The Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver reached the end zone, but unfortunately he scored two points for the wrong team.
The punt landed at his own 11-yard line and Benjamin grabbed the ball at the eight-yard line. He then ran backwards in an effort to create separation, but it did not work out as planned.
Benjamin was tackled in his own end zone for a Patriots safety, giving New England a 9-7 lead over the Chargers in the second quarter.
