Jeopardy Contestants Couldn't Tackle ONE Football Question - Amy Brooks

This is going viral and it's easy to see why.

This pre-Superbowl LII week has done nothing if not whip us all into a football frenzy and even Jeopardy has gotten in on the excitement by making a "Football" category.  What is so amazing here is the obvious...that perhaps it ISN'T a cliche at all that a group of brainiac Jeopardy contestants would know nothing about football.

The contestants avoided the category as long as possible, but when there were no other questions to ask, they had no choice but to tackle it.  Sadly, none...not a one, were able to answer a single football question.

It is fantastic to see Alex Trebek nearly lose his mind, (and the audience's uncomfortable laughter).

However, after Jeopardy sent out this tweet, the ones who took the most abuse and became the brunt of the joke, weren't the contestants at all but the  Cleveland Browns.

Fun fact: Our contestants answered as many clues in this category as the @Browns had wins this season. https://t.co/KMaR8otIHe
