Naturally, Rubio has been thoroughly roasted by football Twitter.
Imagine if NFL team was trailing 24-22 but in final seconds hits a 3 pt kick to win. Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 14, 2018
Well that’s how democrat lawyers plan to steal #Florida election 1/4

I’m just hearing of this tweet about the 3-pt kick. Wait until he learns about the 1-point safety!— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) November 14, 2018

Of course, Rubio has since defended this tweet by arguing not everyone who's into politics knows about field goals.
