I could see someone trying it at the college level.

Has it ever happened?

I've definitely seen it in the pros, but couldn't tell you exactly when.

I'm pretty sure Buddy Ryan did it during the big Cowboys rivalry and the bounty on the kicker thing. There have been multiple fake spikes, but not too many fake kneel downs. To fake a kneel down, you are basically running up the score. Or, you pull it off just before the half.

Courtesy of Reddit:
Rule 7, Section 2, Article 1(c): "An official shall declare the ball dead and the down ended … when a quarterback immediately drops to his knee (or simulates dropping to his knee) behind the line of scrimmage".

The "simulates" point would make it illegal, nowadays.

The current NFL rulebook is here, if you're bored and would like to verify:
https://operations.nfl.com/the-rules/2019-nfl-rulebook/

I coulda' swore Vince Young did it with the Titans... but I could be thinking of their "swinging gate" attempt.

It's illegal to fake a kneel down.


You could line up in victory formation and try to catch the defense sleeping, but you can simulate a kneel down.

Tulane pulled a trick play out of the victory formation but nobody pretended to kneel

Has There Ever Been A Fake Kneeldown?

Yes, Colin Kaepernick pretending to make a SJW stance when he realized he fuckin sucked as an NFL QB and desperately tried to save face by kneeling down. It was successful because the NFL paid him a lot of money for being an ignorant bigot. Of course, closet homo Rich Eisen is still sucking his dick to this day.
