That’s hyperbole, of course. Mark Sanchez was right there on the Eagles sideline for this one, and he could tell you about a worse play that took place in this same stadium. But Marshall’s lateral attempt that donked directly off an opponent’s facemask was momentous in the same tragicomic way.

Marshall was asked about becoming the the 45th player ever to surpass 10,000 receiving yards. His response? “Did you not see the fumble that I had?”

“Wrong time to gamble … I was pressing, trying to make a play, but can’t do that,” Marshall said. “That was probably the worst play in NFL history.”
