Gerald Everett probably wanted that back. Then the Seattle Seahawks defense gave it to him.

Sunday's game between the Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers saw a wild sequence of events early in the third quarter when Seattle entered the red zone hoping to take the lead. They appeared to do so when quarterback Russell Wilson's pass hit tight end Gerald Everett as he was running into the end zone.

And then Everett bobbled the ball. And then he knocked it into air. And then 49ers cornerback K'Waun Williams caught the ball. It's hard to spoil an easy touchdown more than this:

Misery would turn into elation for the Seahawks three plays later, however, when Seahawks defensive end Carlos Dunlap took down Jimmy Garoppolo in the end zone for a game-tying safety, giving his team the ball back in the process.

This all came after the Seahawks got on the board with a fake punt touchdown (video above). It bears repeating: The Seahawks have never played in a normal football game.

The Seahawks would eventually win 30-23 despite Everett once again turning the ball over at the goal line with four minutes left, this time fumbling the ball on a short pass. The Seahawks defense once again held firm, allowing the team to improve to 4-8 in a season filled with struggle.
