If Patriots fans tuned into "Jeopardy!" on Thursday night, they were treated -- to borrow from another sport's well of cliches -- a layup of a category. In the double Jeopardy round, contestants were tested on their "Patriot Game" knowledge.
Yes, five clues entirely dedicated to Patriots trivia. Game on.
Unfortunately for the contestants, it doesn't seem they were cheering for New England on game days, as they only got two of the five correct, but Patriots fans will surely ace it.
Here is a breakdown of the category and the guesses by the contestants:
$400 answer: "This head coach has led the New England Patriots to victory in 6 Super Bowls." Correct guess: Bill Belichick.
$800 answer: "On Oct. 11, 1963 the Red Sox weren't playing; it was the Patriots' first game of 6 seasons in this home field." Incorrect guesses: Wrigley Field, Comiskey Park.
$1200 answer: "In his NFL debut in 2000, this Pats QB completed 1 of 3 passes in a 34-9 loss to Detroit; he got better." Correc guesst: Tom Brady.
$1600 answer: "On a cold 1982 day Mark Henderson used a small John Deere to make the kicker's job easier in what became known as the 'this machine' game." Incorrect guesses: lawnmower, snowblower.
