The most boring play in football has to be the fair catch.
On Saturday, while playing at Arkansas, North Texas wide receiver Keegan Brewer fielded a punt at about his own 10-yard line and proceeded to act like he signaled for a fair catch.
What happened next was absolutely amazing!
We are not sure this is the “greatest football play ever” like the tweet suggests, but it was pretty damn impressive!
Golden Tate has message for ‘booing’ Detroit Lions’ fans
After a long offseason, Detroit Lions’ fans could not wait a second longer for the 2018 NFL season to finally kick off. When it did, it only took one play (not including the opening kickoff) for the Lions to take a 7-0 lead as the crowd at Ford Field went absolutely bonkers in support of their team.
Unfortunately, things went south quickly for the Lions in all aspects of the game and when all was said and done, they had lost 48-17 against a Jets team that was not supposed to be very good.
On multiple occasions during the game, many of the Lions fans in attendance at Ford Field could be heard booing their team. As the game went on and the Jets pulled further and further away, the boos just became louder and louder. That is until many Lions fans decided to head home early to avoid further pain.
Golden Tate understands the passion that Lions’ fans have for their team and he also understands why they were booing.
“Being here for five years and just knowing the history of the Detroit Lions, I definitely understand it,” Tate said. “Our fans get so excited each year and have so much confidence in us that we’re going to win our division, go to the playoffs, win a playoff game, despite what history says. And we definitely appreciate that.”
Though Tate understands the fans booing, he also has a message for them.
