Marshall Runs The Wrong Way


On Oct. 25, 1964, Jim Marshall runs the wrong way against 49ers.

On this day in 1964, Jim Marshall of the Minnesota Vikings had one of the most famous gaffes in sports history. 

Marshall was a great player that once appeared in 282 straight games, then a record. But Marshall is most remembered for his poor play in this game against the San Francisco 49ers. 

Marshall picked up a fumble and returned it 66 yards in the wrong direction. The play resulted in a safety and has become one of the most famous highlights ever.
