How can the team that punts catch the ball and advance it?
punting team gets ball
Ive seen this glitch. Your best bet is to send in a support ticket. Let them know the game, game time, and time in game when it happened. There have been a lot of glitches that have gone unnoticed by the developers but the new crew seems intent on fixing them. At least I would assume they did not mean for this to be a normal thing.
It's not an nfl thing but they do it in rugby
