A field goal is the new touchdown!
If you’re down late in the game in Madden 17, this strange glitch might get you a touchdown by intentionally missing a field goal.
In a glitch discovered by YouTuber Mathew Skoglund (via GameSpot), the Tennesse Titans kick a field goal into the hands of a Minnesota Viking. Now, most would think that this would result in a turnover on downs, but instead, the Titans ends up with a touchdown. What is even weirder is that the game records it as Titans touchdown, while the commentators suggest the Vikings have scored. While it is unclear exactly what triggers this glitch, the end result is nothing short of hilarious.
Mathew Skoglund isn’t the only player encountering strange endzone glitches, either. You can watch another hilarious turnover touchdown here:
