GIF: Marques Colston’s poorly executed lateral turned into a forward pass

The New Orleans Saints’ season ended in bizarre fashion, off a poorly executed lateral by Marques Colston.

Down by eight points and not possessing any timeouts, Drew Brees found Colston by the near sidelines with seven seconds left in the game. Rather than step out of bounds and set up a final play, the receiver tried a version of the Music City Miracle, which failed miserably.

Colston threw a forward pass. Officials ran 10 seconds off the clock. The Saints lost. Seattle advanced.

Here’s a look at the play that will surely cause Colston some sleepless nights during the long offseason.
