NFL-themed 'Jeopardy!' category turned into a disaster when contestants couldn't name a single team

Over the years, “Jeopardy!” has produced some great moments in sports-related categories, but on Monday, it may have had its roughest sequence yet.

The three contestants on Monday’s show struggled mightily with a category titled “NFL teams by Hall of Famer” and failed to name a single actual NFL team.

The category began when the answer was “Michael Irvin” and time ran out without a single contestant buzzing in.

It continued for another two questions, with one contestant, Anupama, guessing “Colorado Rockies” to an answer. Mercifully, time then expired on the round, bringing an end to the bloodshed.

Watch some of the round below:
