Nick Foles had a pretty bad night in Monday's 24-10 defeat to the Los Angeles Rams. At least he still got to collect his game check.

A big payday wasn't in the cards for one DraftKings player, however. Rob Huntze appeared to have won a cool $1 million prize in a daily fantasy competition before a stat correction took one sack away from the Chicago Bears, which dropped Huntze's payout to $3,078.94 (h/t the Action Network):

"Heartbreaking on many levels," Huntze told ESPN's David Purdum.

This is now poised to be the most contested sack since the one Michael Strahan registered on Brett Favre to set the single-season record in 2001.

There are bad beats, and then there are bad beats.
