He’s supposed to be the personal protector, not the punt-snap deflector.

The Los Angeles Rams’ offense stalled big time in the second half against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Three straight three-and-outs and a 17-6 lead was suddenly a tenuous 17-14 advantage.

The Rams have one of the best punters in Johnny Hekker. However, the snap has to get to him so he can do his job.

This one didn’t. Watch as the personal protector is lined up incorrectly and the ball deflects off Nick Scott and into the end zone.

The loose ball is recovered by Ashton Dunn in the end zone and suddenly, the Colts had a 21-17 lead after scoring 15 in a row.
