Jeopardy Contestants at a loss when the category was FOOTBALL

The contestants on last night's  Jeopardy episode lived up the the show's nerdy reputation when none of them was able to answer even one of the questions in the "Talkin' Football" category. The sports fail -- which came just three days before the Super Bowl -- left host Alex Trebek doing some sarcastic mocking and the audience flat-out laughing. Here are some of the clues, and you can check out the whole segment in the video:

  • “Your choice: do or don’t name this play in which the QB runs the ball & can choose to pitch it another back” (Answer: "option")
  • Tom Landry perfected the shotgun formation with this team” (Answer: "Dallas Cowboys")
  • “By signaling for one of these, a returner can reel in a kick without fear of getting tackled” ("Fair catch")
