Seahawks fourth year defensive lineman Rasheem Green housed a blocked PAT for nearly 80 yards for a pair of points to tie the game at 9-9 before halftime in Washington. And those words aren’t uttered often these days.
Petition to make all big man returns count for six. What a play by @ras_green!

He did so with some incredible speed as well, just landing under the mark of a former Seahawk, Jadeveon Clowney, who ran at just a little bit of a faster rate when he was with Seattle a couple of years ago.
Now, how rare is this, do you ask? He’s in some uncharted territory.
Rasheem Green pulled off a rare hat trick on his blocked PAT return conversion.
It was the first defensive conversion since 2019 and the 11th overall since 2015.
Of the 11, 7 have been on blocked PATs.

Green pulled off a rare feat. It has been two years since a PAT was returned for two, and only one of a couple handfuls in the first five years.
To be the first player ever to block, recover and score on the return? Quite the Seahawks type play. Green puts himself in the history books with that one.
