LOOK: Bills give up humiliating touchdown to Jets' kickoff team in 30-10 loss
This might be the worst touchdown that any team has ever given up on a kickoff
In a play that perfectly epitomized the Bills' season, Buffalo's kickoff return team gave up a touchdown because they forgot to field the ball. You might expect something like that to happen in a Pop Warner game, but nope, it actually happened in an NFL game.
The embarrassing play went down in the fourth quarter after the Jets' hit a 25-yard field goal to take a 23-3 lead. After the field goal, the Bills' circus started when New York kicked off.
On the kickoff, Jets kicker Nick Folk hit a high-pooch kick that landed at the Bills' 14-yard line. While the kick was in the air, Bills returner Mike Gillislee came up like he was going to field the kick, but then he let it go over his head.
After that, things got even worse.
The ball, which was live and could be recovered by either team, rolled all the way to the end zone.
At that point, instead of picking it up, Gillislee just stared at it for some reason. Again, this is a live ball that can be recovered by the Jets.
Since Gillislee apparently wanted nothing to do with the ball, New York's Doug Middleton jumped on it in the end zone for a Jets touchdown.
This was easily the most baffling play of the day.
Even the Bills' official Twitter account was perplexed by Gillslee's actions.
Gillislee doesn't field the live ball on the kickoff, Jets recover in their endzone. Touchdown. So, yeah.— Buffalo Bills (@buffalobills) January 1, 2017
30-3 Jets | 3:21 4Q
The Jets touchdown gave New York a 30-3 lead in a game that they would win 30-10.
If you need a good laugh, here's a look at the entire play.
