If a team try's to score a touchdown but gets intercepted in the in zone and then that person gets tackled is it a safety?
as soon as he has control of the ball its a safety
No, you get the ball on the 20.
Let me go back and review the Browns games. I am sure we had this happen to us at some point. lol
ZoWillie is right, when the player is tackled in the end zone after picking it off it's call a touch back and the ball is placed at the 20 yard line.
It's only a safety if the ball carrier leaves the end zone to try to advance the ball and runs back into the end zone and then gets tackled. Otherwise as others have said its a touchback and the ball gets placed on the 20 yard line.
