Case Keenum has had one of the most unique careers in recent memory. He's been a backup, a journeyman, a high-level asset, paid like a franchise quarterback and then a backup again. With a career like that, it's no surprise that Keenum has had his fair share of ups and downs in the NFL.

But one of his worst moments came on this interception against the New York Giants.

Back when he was with the Rams, Keenum drops back and throws a lob up into the end zone. The only problem? There wasn't a receiver within 10 yards of the football. There was, however, New York Giants corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and he hauled it in for one of the easiest interceptions in NFL history. That this pass came in the red zone just makes it that much worse.

To be fair, this was almost certainly a miscommunication, and we don't know if the receiver ran the wrong route, or if Keenum made the wrong read. This was also a London game, so perhaps the trip across the pond threw everyone off a bit.

Regardless, this play looks more like a "Madden" glitch than a real-life NFL throw.
