Kick off returns are not supposed to be easy. Coverage teams have a slight advantage since they can see the whole play develop as they run down the field and the return teams are somewhat reactive to them.

Instead it was a game filled with errors, mistakes, and penalties. It was the kind of game where you can't afford to lose a key player--like a starting linebacker...
