Mike Gillislee probably played his best football with the Buffalo Bills, but he may end up being remembered for this one unfortunate lapse in judgement in 2016. Lack of awareness like this will drive coaches and fans berserk. And boy does this play fit that mold.

In some circles, you might call this sort of thing a "bonehead play." In the moment of indecision, Gillislee allows the ball to sit in the end zone unclaimed, which is when the New York Jets pounce on it.

It's not only that the Bills players were unprepared and didn't know what to do, it's that a rival team (who's already blowing you out) did, and without hesitation. Doug Middleton is the man who ends up securing the touchdown, one that the broadcaster declares as "probably the easiest touchdown he'll ever have."

This is one that may live on forever, unfortunately for Gillislee. The running back has not played since a brief 2018 stint with the New Orleans Saints. Doug Middleton is currently unsigned too. The Jets-Bills rivalry could be as strong as ever in 2020 though, and there's no doubt Jets fans will keep this video saved for a rainy day.
