WATCH: Jets WR Robby Anderson’s failed attempt at a Gronk spike


It wouldn’t be New York Jets vs. New England Patriots without an unusual moment taking place during the game.

Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was upset when he got pushed hard out of bounds after making a catch in the third quarter. Once he got up, he showed his frustration when he spiked the ball. However, in that rage he forgot that he was surrounded by people.

The ball hit Patriots cornerback Johnson Bademosi squarely in the facemask. Bademosi took a second to absorb the blow, and realized that he might be able to get an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty called. He then dropped to the ground like he was taking a charge in a basketball game.

There were no penalties called, and now America has another opportunity to laugh at the Jets. Nothing will ever compare to the butt fumble from Thanksgiving Day in 2012. However, this spike, and former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino’s game-winning touchdown pass after a fake spike, can take home honorable-mention honors.

The Jets had a moment in their first game this season against the Patriots that wasn’t so much funny as it was head-scratching. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins appeared to have scored a touchdown to give his team the lead, however, the ball briefly came out of his hand as he went into the end zone.

It was ruled a fumble and touchback on review, which gave the possession to the Patriots.
