Tom Brady question on Jeopardy! was a layup for all but the most casual NFL fans


Unless you live under a rock, you might have heard Tom Brady is no longer under center for the New England Patriots.

But the good folks who author the questions on the iconic evening game show Jeopardy! apparently thought this basic, months-old news might stump the contestants on last night's show.

A question about Brady's late-career jump to the Tampa Bay Bucs appeared during the Double Jeopardy! round, where, perhaps tellingly, it was the second query under the group "Celebs Coming & Going."

The softball question was worth $800, which was awarded to contestant Robert Kaine, a copyeditor from California, when he correctly identified the Bucs as Touchdown Tom's new employer.

At least one former contestant appeared to be watching -- and threw a little shade at Brady.

But mostly, users just wanted to roast the powder puff question.

Kaine went on to win the contest on Wednesday, unseating two-day champion Lisa Grove, also of California.

Brady's Bucs career got off to a rocky start with an underwhelming loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, though he got back on track with a win over the Carolina Panthers at home last week. They next take on the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.
