For those of you who don’t have NFL Network or a Sprint handset with NFL Mobile Live, you probably didn’t see Thursday night’s game between the Jets and the Bills.
So you missed a relatively bland contest. But you also missed one of the all-time bloopers, which will provide great fodder for the NFL Films football follies.
In the first half, Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was wide open for what would have been a Devery Henderson-style 84-yard catch and run to the end zone.
And he didn’t make the catch. Here’s the evidence.
Calling it a “drop” might be a bit of a stretch, unless Edwards had planned to secure the ball in the opening of his face mask.
Matt Millen of NFLN, whose performance included an observation that “the Jets are running the crap out of the football,” offered up a great comment after the play: “Did he look it in? Absolutely. In fact, he looked it right in to his face.”
That said, the third overall pick from the 2005 draft is doing slightly better at the NFL level than the receiver Millen selected that year at No. 10.
