There's a difference between gamesmanship and just straight up cheating. Malik Jackson showed just where that line is on Sunday Night Football after blatantly cheating to hilarious effect.

Check out this sneaky veteran move he pulled right under the referees' noses.

With the San Francisco 49ers lining up just inches away from the goal line, Jackson stealthily nudges the ball back just a bit. It was an expert-level move, as he waited for the precise moment that the referees turned their backs. Still, this is something you'd expect to see from the villain in a high school football movie, not a former Super Bowl champion and Pro Bowler.

In his defense, football is famously a game of inches and that famous adage clearly isn't lost on Jackson.
