Jeopardy rips Cleveland Browns with ruthless tweet

Jeopardy rips Cleveland Browns with ruthless tweet

The Super Bowl may be days away, but that fact apparently will be lost to the contestants who competed on Thursdays episode of Jeopardy! Yet not only did these questions go unanswered, but the contestants didn't even try for them until they had no other choice.

And the show had an epic, yet truthful, troll for the Cleveland Browns.

Jeopardy!'s social media guru made a decision to connect the football category failure to, well, the Browns failure in the same category in 2017...

It happened Thursday night when none of the show's three contestants knew any of the answers in a football-related category.

No one rang in with the correct response, and Trebek informed them, "It's an option play".

The $400 answer didn't get any better.

Trebek then asked for the team with which Tom Landry perfected the shotgun formation. Not to these Jeopardy! contestants, who were dumbfounded. Trebek joked as the audience laughed.

"By signaling for one of these, a returner can reel in a kick without fear of getting tackled", Trebek said. But our three contestants, Ryan, Sara and Justin, clearly were not prepared.

The guy on the left, by the way, won the game after answering the Final Jeopardy! question about novelist and poet Jack Kerouac.

Twitter fans were only too happy to pile on.
