    Forever known as the Buttfumbler. What a legacy.

    The Butt-Fumble will live on.

    What makes it even better is that it was returned for an easy TD, cementing it as one of the most embarrassing plays in the history of football.

    Butt fumble - Wikipedia


    Play
    The Jets lined up in an I formation, with Sanchez under center. In the backfield were fullback Lex Hilliard and running back Shonn Greene, 41⁄2 and 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage respectively. Sanchez had called the play in the huddle: a designed handoff to the fullback.[8] Typically in this formation, the running back receives the ball, and the fullback blocks for him. The play call would attempt to misdirect the defense, as Greene would peel away to the left and Hilliard would take a quick handoff to the right.[9]

    When Sanchez took the snap, he mistakenly turned to the left, where there was no one to receive the handoff. Trying to salvage the broken play, Sanchez scrambled forward towards the line of scrimmage.[10] At the 32-yard line, as he tried to slide down to protect himself and the ball, Sanchez collided with right guard Brandon Moore, who was working against Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork; the collision dislodged the ball from Sanchez's right arm. As Sanchez was knocked down and Moore fell on top of him, the football bounced out to the right side of the play, near the 32-yard line, directly in front of Patriots safety Steve Gregory, who collected the ball with his fingertips and ran untouched into the Jets' end zone for a scoop-and-score touchdown.[7]


    Within minutes, video of the butt fumble went viral on the Internet,[16] and it was widely mocked in the news media over the following week​

    I've never laughed so hard in my life, capped by Edelman running another fumble in for a score on the ensuing kickoff.

    The camera pans to Wrecks Ryan remarking, "Unf*ckingbelievable."

    It was Jete follies at their finest.

    Losing to Sanchez in the playoffs at Gillette is one of the low points in team history.

    The Butt Fumble is one of the high points.

    Looking at the Power Rankings from PFT it looks like the Jete are the darlings of New Jersey now.

    24 - Jete
    31 - Giants

    Everyone talks about Super Bowl 42. And rightfully so. But there was zero excuse for losing to this bum and that team in a home playoff game. One of the darker moments of the BB TB era. I feel rage when I think back to that game.

    It wasn't so much that Brady had a bad game that Ryan unveiled a masterpiece of a defensive gameplan that effectively had Brady fooled for the most parts. A lot of the rushes and blitzes he thought was coming, never materialized.

    I was there, of course. My buddy, who joined me, lives in upstate New York and had paid for his room in a hotel nearby. He was so pissed he skipped the hotel and drove all the way home that night.
