    So it is 4rth down and Indy does what teams do on fourth down which is go into punt formation, only Indy shifts to the side lines in punt formation with the center and QB are left alone in the center of the field. Naturally, the Patriots are ready to pounce on them once the ball is hiked, and do.

    What were they thinking?

    looked like a play I might have hatched when I was 8

    I think the missed snap by Peyton Manning in the opening drive of Super Bowl XLVIII should count as the worst unless you are Seahawks fan. I consider it possibly the best Super Bowl start ever.

    Broncos first drive: one play, Seahawks 2 Broncos 0!

    You can't call a missed snap the worst play ever. Teams miss snaps every week. You can call the Broncos missed snap the worst start to a superbowl but that's all.
    As for the Colts play it's just an epic fail. We know the Pats like to play with formations and play calling (and the pressure of balls) so I think the Colts were trying to outthink them and failed miserably. They snapped the ball to a guy who isn't used to it, who fumbles it then falls to the ground as he's hit by a defender.

    Worst play in NFL history? Maybe...maybe not. Last years play by the Seattle Seahawks to throw an interception on the goal line rather than run the ball for an almost sure touchdown and 2nd super bowl title deserves consideration.

    Running is not an almost sure touchdown. Marshawn Lynch's career stats in short yardage situations are abysmal.
