WATCH: Seahawks linebacker inexplicably runs onto the field after Quandre Diggs INT and starts playing
Every week during the NFL season, we’re bound to see some wacky stuff. During Sunday’s contest between the Seahawks and Raiders, one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen in an NFL game happened.
The craziest part, it happened on the first play from scrimmage. After receiving the opening kickoff, Derek Carr and his Raiders offense set up shop at their own 20 yard line.
On the ensuing play, Carr threw an interception to Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs. After the diving INT, his teammate, linebacker Darrell Taylor, appeared to think Diggs was down by contact. Taylor, in an attempt to celebrate with his fellow Seahawks defenders, ran onto the field almost immediately after Diggs made the play.
The only issue was, the play was far from over.
Diggs gathered himself after the INT and began running towards the end zone. Caught in the fray, Taylor decided to act like nothing was out of the ordinary and began blocking for his teammate on the return.
The Seahawks take their “12th Man” pretty seriously it seems

The funniest part in all of this, Taylor wasn’t even flagged for it. He just ran onto the field in the middle of a play, began blocking on the INT return, and walked back to the sideline like nothing even happened. Remarkable.
You never truly know what you’re going to get when you turn on your TV for NFL Sunday. This was a first for me and I’m so glad Taylor managed to get away with it. It just goes to show how blind some officiating crews can be at times.
