New York fans that were upset to see Mark Sanchez fumble away their chances against New England got a pleasant surprise from a notable CBS announcer.
In the "stunner" of the day, the Jets upset the Patriots in New England to take sole possession of first place in the AFC East. At least, that's true if you are CBS announcer Jim Nantz, who clearly forgot a few things about football. Such as:
- Which team Mark Sanchez plays for
- Which team is the Jets
- Which team is the Patriots
- What it means when one team has more points than the other team
Nantz, 53, declared that if the Mark Sanchez fumble to New England was upheld that it would seal the deal, making the Jets the biggest upset winner of the day. Again, that if the fumble by Sanchez was upheld as a recovery for the Patriots, it would be the final nail in the coffin for the Patriots.
After it was upheld, Nantz loads up for what he knows will be a big call in a big game, announcing that the JETS were in first place now -- wait a minute, that silence is the sound of a producer talking into his ear. Final score: Patriots 29, Jets 26 (OT), so congratulations New York! Hear the call below.
