A group of contestants on “Jeopardy!” Monday evening proved that while they may be knowledgeable about many subjects, football is not among them.
During “The Jeopardy!” round, one of the categories was “NFL teams by Hall of Famer.” That asked contestants to name the team the Hall of Famer represented. Two of the players were “Mean Joe” Greene and Marcus Allen. The contestants failed to name the teams correctly, with one contestant answering the “Colorado Rockies” for one item.

It didn’t take long to find out why the contestants had left the NFL category for last. Clearly they were stumped.
The only question is whether we will see one of the participants send an apology.
