There have been many plays that live in infamy throughout NFL history.
The Butt Fumble, the missed Indianapolis Colts fake punt, the Seattle Seahawks interception in the Super Bowl and, most recently, the New England Patriots wide receiver, Jakobi Meyers’ lateral try on Sunday.
This play led to the Patriots losing their game against the Las Vegas Raiders, with Meyers bearing the brunt of scrutiny in the sports media.

In the clip above, Stephen A. Smith speaks his mind about the decision Meyers made and makes it clear that he believes this was one of the dumbest plays in NFL history, if not the dumbest.
The catastrophic implications of this play
While Meyers isn’t the only reason for the Patriots’ loss on Sunday, it’s hard to find any silver lining in this decision.
This play not only ultimately resulted in the Patriots losing, but it put them in a much tougher position to make the playoffs.
They are currently tied with the New York Jets at the bottom of the AFC East at 7-7.
If the season ended today, the Patriots would be out of the playoffs, just behind the Miami Dolphins (8-6).
The Patriots will need to win the rest of their games this season to have a shot at the playoffs, and also get a little help from other teams in the league.
With games against the Cincinnati Bengals, Dolphins and Buffalo Bills to end the season, the Patriots will have tough tests against some of the best teams in the AFC.
