Chargers receiver makes baffling decision on punt return, gets tackled in end zone for a safety after running backward

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin had a punt return to forget on Sunday vs. the New England Patriots.

In the second quarter, Benjamin fielded a punt, but bobbled the ball as he caught it.

As the Patriots came rushing at him, Benjamin scooped up the ball and ran backward to evade the oncoming Patriots.

However, Benjamin ran all the way back into the end zone, where he got bottled up by Patriots defenders and was tackled for a safety.

Not great.
