    I'm sure that's with the roll.

    From http://www.nflhistory.net/shared/alltimeteam.asp?Team=4

    P: O’Neal—in only his second pro game, hit still-standing NFL-record 98-yard punt.

    Must have been a situation were they brought all 11 after a punt from the endzone, and the ball rolled all the way to the other endzone.

    gap

    Edit: Did they have a touch-back rule then for kicks into the endzone? The lack of a touch-back rule might have placed the ball just outside the endzone.
