Ref gets knocked down during INT return (video)

The Minnesota Vikings beat the San Diego Chargers Sunday by the final score of 31-7. It was a snoozer, but with about 14 minutes left in the game, Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway picked off quarterback Philip Rivers and returned it 91 yards for a touchdown.

That still wasn’t particularly interesting, but on the return, the official ran into and was leveled by a coach as he ran down the sideline.

Ouch. Bet that ref wishes he had been watching where he was going. He may or may not have had a few choice words for the coach that stepped in his way as well.
