This is pretty interesting; you know, for a punting thing.

Koch began experimenting. He angled his body toward the right sideline, a pre-snap position that usually indicates the kick's direction, and torqued his hips and right leg toward the left sideline without changing his horizon -- ultimately sending the ball some 40 yards toward the opposite sideline a returner would expect.
"After a few minutes," Rosburg said, "we knew we had something."
The effect was immediate and, without exaggeration, has turned punting strategy in the NFL upside down. Yet almost no one has noticed.

That was really interesting! It's surprising that we care that little about punting that nobody has really heard about this.
