Watch: Seahawks score 73-yard touchdown untouched on fake punt

A fake punt couldn't look easier than it did for the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13. On a fourth down from their own 27 yard line, the Seahawks directly snapped to running back Travis Homer who broke free for a 73-yard touchdown and was never even close to tackled by the San Francisco 49ers.

 The only other touchdown of the year for Homer also came on special teams when he recovered an onside kick and returned it 44 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

An aggressive playcall makes sense for Seattle, because the team is in desperate need of an offensive boost. Despite the return of Russell Wilson from a thumb injury, the Seahawks have lost three straight games since their bye week and have averaged less than 10 points per game during the slide.

Seattle is 3-8 on the year and hoping for an upset victory over the 6-5 49ers.
