In case you missed it earlier, take a look at this .gif of the Miami punter Brandon Fields taking a football to the face on a botched snap and hold. He was looking back at kicker Caleb Sturgis on a 42 yard field goal attempt, and what ensued was nothing short of hilarious. (credit to farm8.staticflickr.com)   This might be one of my favorite reactions of all time. Some are even comparing it to Mark Sanchez’s “butt fumble” in 2012. Luckily for Fields, this screw up didn’t cost Miami in the long run, as they notched a signature last minute victory over AFC East rival New England. This puts them in prime position in the AFC Wild Card race. Still, this is a screw up that some are not likely to forget any time soon.
