Butt fumble, meet the butt punt.

The Dolphins take over first place in the AFC East after edging the Bills on Sunday to improve to 3-0, but they weren't content just winning another game in Week 3; they also provided one of the most unusually entertaining plays of the season.
This Thanksgiving will mark 10 years since Mark Sanchez and the Jets introduced the term «butt fumble» into the lexicon, and for those of us who have cherished the moment in the decade that's followed, it's hard to believe there was ever a time without it. On Sunday, a long-awaited sequel arrived at the end of the Bills-Dolphins game.
Clinging to a 21–17 lead with under two minutes to play, Miami was forced to punt from its own end zone. With Buffalo bringing the pressure, Dolphins punter Thomas Morstead tried to get the kick off quickly. Instead, he booted the ball into the backside of his teammate, with the pigskin ricocheting backward and out of the end zone for a safety.
After the game, former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, of the aforementioned butt fumble, poked some good-natured fun at Morstead on Twitter.
Trent Sherfield, the player who got kicked on, had a laugh as well.
