CLEVELAND -- Jeopardy is throwing some serious shade at the Cleveland Browns.

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

Jeopardy tweeted video of the moment with this caption: “Fun Fact: Our contestants answered as many clues in this category as the @Browns had wins this season.”


The tweet snagged more than 3,000 retweets in just a few hours.

Chris McNeil, the man behind the Browns "Perfect Season Parade," tweeted at Jeopardy saying, "But your bacon is just ham, Alex Trebek."

Here were the football clues the contestants failed to answer correctly (scroll to the bottom of the story to see if you got them right):

$200: Your choice: Do or don’t name this play in which the QB runs the ball and can choose to pitch it to another back.


$400: Tom Landry perfected the shotgun formation with this team.


$600: By signaling for one of these, a returner can reel in a kick without fear of getting tackled.


$800: These “penalties” are simultaneous violations by the offense and defense that cancel each other out.


$1,000: As Minneapolis’s US Bank Stadium prepares to host Super Bowl LII, I’m looking at the Ring of Honor, with names from this defensive line that took the Vikings to four Super Bowls.

“If you guys ring in and get this one, I will die,” host Alex Trebek said as the live studio audience laughed.


$200 correct response: Option play.

$400 correct response: Dallas Cowboys.

$600 correct response: Fair catch.

$800 correct response: Offsetting penalties.

$1,000 correct response: Purple People Eaters.
