Watch The Dumbest Play In Monday Night Football History [VIDEO]

David Hookstead Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson might have had the dumbest play in the history of Monday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys.

With the game tied 9-9 on Monday, Jackson was set to receive a very simple punt. Instead of just calling for a fair catch or accepting the short gain, he opted to run for a massive loss and fumbled the ball in a miserably illegal forward lateral attempt that was recovered by the Cowboys.

WATCH:

Jackson’s boneheaded decision would have been very dumb if it happened in the first half, but because it happened with under two minutes remaining in a tied game against a divisional opponent, the stakes were drastically raised.

Plus, add in the fact the Cowboys went on to win the game, there’s no doubt that Jackson’s failed lateral resulting in a recovered fumble for the Cowboys, is one of the most embarrassing and worst plays ever.
