“And I, you know, part of being a part of the lore of the butt fumble, I was at that game and the best part about that was I didn’t see it live. I really didn’t know what happened. And I got back to my hotel that night—I stayed in New York that night, it was a Thursday night game, and I got to see my son the next day who was living in New York at the time—and it was about 12 o’clock,” Brady explained.

“I got back to my hotel and I turned on one of the networks, and they were replaying the game and I saw the butt fumble. And the first time I saw it I laughed out loud to myself in a room by myself for 20 seconds because I thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever seen in my life in sports. And the fact that our team was the beneficiary of it, and I was on the sideline still makes it one of the funniest things I ever remember in sports. I don’t think yesterday topped it, but it was pretty funny.”

The Jets were outscored 35-3 in the second quarter of that game and lost 49-19.
