Jets Attempt To Hide Player In End Zone On Trick Play, Fail Miserably

To say that things haven’t gone well for the New York Jets on Sunday — or all season — would be a gross understatement.

After starting quarterback Geno Smith got benched following his three interceptions in the first quarter, Michael Vick was handed the reins, and to put it simply, things didn’t get any better. But the true lowlight of the game came in the third quarter after a Buffalo Bills field goal.

The Jets tried to take a page out of TCU’s playbook and attempted to run a trick play on the ensuing kickoff that involved a player laying down in the end zone to hide.

Unsurprisingly, though, things did not go according to plan. Instead of a big return like they were hoping for, newly-acquired Percy Harvin attempted to run it out of his end zone before faking a throw to T.J. Graham — who isn’t stellar at that whole camouflaging thing — only to be tackled at the three-yard line.

The Jets went on to lose 43-23 and are now 1-7 on the season. No hiding that.
