It has been more than five years since we had the infamous Butt Fumble. Now, we have the Butt Pick. Or maybe we’ll call it the Buttception.
In the 2nd quarter of today’s Atlanta Falcons – New Orleans Saints contest, Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan saw his pass tip off of his receiver’s hands. But instead of the ball falling harmlessly to the ground for an incompletion, the pigskin landed on the backside of New Orleans cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
And it never hit the ground.

As you can see in the video at the top of the page, tweeted out by sports anchor Ricardo LeCompte, the ball falls on Lattimore’s butt. Another Saints defender touches it as he flies over Lattimore, allowing the New Orleans rookie to snag the ball with his hands as he rolls over. All in all, an absolutely amazing and improbable play that will likely be replayed countless times on highlight reels.
