Best Answer

You are probably thinking of Jim Marshall, the great Minnesota Vikings defensive end who committed that faux pas in a 1964 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He didn't score a touchdown for San Francisco because crossing the other team's end zone with the ball is a safety worth two points.
