Jets’ Marcus Maye makes a butt interception against Dolphins

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The New York Jets have been mocked for years after Mark Sanchez had the butt fumble. Still, eight years later, it is one of the most comical moments in a game.

Sanchez lost the ball after running into offensive lineman Brandon Moore’s behind against the New England Patriots. The collision caused Sanchez to lose the ball — and most NFL fans remember the butt fumble compared to the 49-19 loss to the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The Jets had another butt play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Jets free safety Marcus Maye intercepted Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fourth quarter with a little assistance from his backside.

During the play, Maye was defending Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams. The pass was short, which allowed Maye to make a play on the ball.

The pass bounced around, before landing on his butt cheek. Maye did not gain any yardage on the play.

Maye may have made the play of the year with this butt interception. It is going to be tough to top this play – and it’s going to live up for years to come.

This was the lone bright spot in a lackluster performance for the Jets, who were defeated 24-0 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
