This happened a lot last year:
Offense stalls at our own 30 yd line
We punt, other team starts at own 10
Defense stops them (3 and out)
Other team punts
We return it their 40 yd line and are already in FG range
That's 30 offensive yards on account of the punter, defense, and punt return team. And it all starts with the punter, so it's a worthy IMO.
Bingo. If our offense is only average with that kind of "head start" this team will be almost unbeatable.
