The only thing wilder than the field the LA KISS play on is this return of a missed field goal by AJ Cruz.

Despite being swarmed by several Spokane Shock defenders within five yards of his end zone, Cruz was able to work some magic and avoid being tackled. His efforts were rewarded as he took the return all the way back for a touchdown.

Unfortunately for the KISS, Cruz's insane return wasn't enough to keep the team in the game. The Shock cruised to a 70-21 victory despite losing quarterback Erik Meyer—the 2013 Arena Football League Most Valuable Player—to injury during the game.
