Default Scoring a Safety on a Try for 1 point

Ok NFL buffs - can you explain how a team can score 1 point for a safety on the "Try" after a touchdown. It is in the rules but has never happen. I will give the answer tomorrow. Have fun.

Section 3 Try

Article 1

(c) if there is no kick and the Try results in what would ordinarily be a safety by the defense, one point is awarded to the offensive team.


I knew having an Official NFL Rulesbook would come in handy.

Learn something new everyday. Yeah, that would have to be a pretty big loss of 97 yards.

Ok you know the rule from the book but can you describe a play that would work. Hint - The play does not happen at the opposite goal as blackngold and FanInCA suggested.

If a player from the defense would get a turnover and would get tackled in the endzone for a safety after already having the ball out of the endzone.

I believe that would be the correct scenario right there???

Nope. If the defense gains position on a Try - the ball in dead and no safety. Getting warm though.
