These Jeopardy contestants have no idea what to make of football questions

It’s safe to say they’ve never played even touch football in their lives.

There are plenty of Jeopardy categories that stump me, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a struggle quite like this one. The three contestants are into Double Jeopardy, and the final category is football. It was saved for last, and we quickly find out why.

None of the three even attempt to offer a question for the five answers remaining. The final one about the Minnesota Vikings is at least moderately difficult, but the rest do require some basic football knowledge. I’m not surprised someone wouldn’t know about football, but all three contestants on the same Jeopardy game?

I can’t really make fun of them, but Alex Trebek’s response to them as he moves down the column cracks me up to no end.
