stat download from ***sports lists the TD as Special Teams. I would tend to
agree. Carolina was, after all, lined up to kick, did kick, and had it returned.
Had Dempsey's 63-yarder been short, it also could have been returned.
Indeed, I remember a Packer safety going up under the goalpost and blocking
a FGA during the Lombardi era, and the announcers mentioning it could have
been returned (turned out a touchback because it dribbled across the goal
line---upon which the posts stood, in those days).
Can't see whyWilliams' return would be different simply because twas blocked
behind the line of scrimmage.
