Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters tried to create a loophole for NFL penalties on Sunday:
On a Jets two-point conversion attempt late in the fourth quarter of Chiefs-Jets, a flag was thrown against Kansas City for defensive holding. Peters, enraged, picked up the flag and launched it into the crowd.

First off, that’s a great throw. It’s like a basketball player hurling the ball into the air as the game ends, but instead of a basketball, it’s a yellow sock with beans inside. (And as great as Peters’s toss is, don’t sleep on the ref, who smirks and then retaliates by tossing his hat into the air to replace the lost flag. If only Peters threw the hat into the crowd, too.)
Meanwhile, one Jets fan caught the flag.

That belongs in the NFL souvenir Hall of Fame.
Peters headed to the locker room after being ejected for the incident, except, lol jk, he wasn’t ejected! Everyone assumed he’d get tossed, including Peters, but as he left the field Chiefs employees chased after him to bring him back.
Everybody at MetLife thought Marcus Peters was ejected after throwing the flag into the crowd & himself walked to the locker room. Then team realized he wasn’t, one staff member telling me the went back to get him.— StaceyDales (@StaceyDales) December 3, 2017
He must have rushed back in a hurry, because he returned without socks.
The Chiefs lost the game 38-31, which will quickly be forgotten because this moment will be immortalized in GIF form for the rest of time.
