See If You Can Answer The 5 Football Trivia Questions That Nobody Got On Jeopardy! Last Night

jeopardy football questions

Apparently, not everyone knows the basic rules of football.

Contestants on Jeopardy! aren't usually sports fanatics, but most of the time, they're able to answer simple questions about popular sports like football, basketball and baseball. Thursday night, that was not the case - not at all.

The three contestants for Thursday night's game left a category called "Talkin' Football" for the end - and it became obvious why pretty quickly. None even ventured a guess at any of the five questions. The crazy thing? None of them were all that hard.

Jeopardy! likely chose the category because this is the week leading up to the Super Bowl. This year's contest comes between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.

If you haven't yet seen the video and want to test your knowledge against that of last night's contestants, we've built a quick five-question quiz with both the questions and answers. We imagine that if you've clicked this link, you're going to do pretty well.

Click below to get started. Yes, it makes it a little easier since it's multiple choice. But we're not sure you're going to need options to figure out the answers anyway.

Enjoy the quiz. Scroll down to watch the Jeopardy video, which is hilarious.
