Anyone who’s seen the trailer will know what I’m talking about, so I didn’t use spoiler tags here.
During the events of The Dark Knight Rises, Hines Ward has a kickoff return for a touchdown, and as he’s running, the field starts imploding behind him. He manages to outrun it and score, and then he turns around to survey the damage.
A silly question popped into my head after the scene: “Would the touchdown still count?” Would there be an official NFL rule that would cover this particular scenario? I mean, of course the game would be postponed or even canceled due to an unusable playing surface, not to mention the presumed death of a vast majority of the players involved, but I’m just curious, in a macabre sort of way.
