It’s not often that a kicker can be a perfect 4-for-4 on both field goals and extra points yet have another play be the main topic of discussion, but that’s exactly what Younghoe Koo accomplished during the Falcons’ 40-20 victory against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Midway through the third quarter, Koo kicked off to Panthers returner Greg Dortch and raced down the field to cover the kick. Next thing Koo realized, the ball was in his grasp and the Falcons had possession at the Panthers’ 16-yard line.
“I don’t know, I just kind of blacked out,” Koo said. “I was just excited, I couldn’t believe it. It was the right place at the right time. I went down there and covered the kick really well, and it just happened that way – it was crazy.
“I was running and it just came straight to my stomach. I didn’t have to go for it or anything, it was just really lucky.”
