Mark Sanchez has great response to Dolphins' 'Butt Punt' vs. Bills originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Late in the fourth quarter with the game on the line, punter Thomas Morstead kicked the ball into his teammate's backside. The Bills recovered for a safety to cut the deficit to two points.
Thus, the "Butt Punt" was born.
The hilarious blunder brought back memories of Mark Sanchez's infamous "Butt Fumble" from the 2012 Thanksgiving Day game between the New York Jets and New England Patriots. Sanchez fumbled after running into the rear end of his offensive lineman, creating one of the most memorable highlights in NFL history.

Woah… stay out of my lane bro @thomasmorstead #NFL," he tweeted after the play.

Miami improves to 3-0 on the season to take over the top spot in the AFC East.
