The Chiefs cornerback melted down after teammate Steven Nelson was called for defensive holding on a Jets two-point conversion attempt in the fourth quarter, picking up the flag near his feet and firing it into the crowd at MetLife Stadium. That led to more yellow laundry on the field, naturally, as Peters was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Has this ever happened before?
The thing about that, though: Peters didn't actually get ejected. It's unclear if Peters mistakenly believed his impulsive act had earned him a disqualification or if he'd just decided he was done with football for the day. Either way, the CBS broadcast reported that a Chiefs staffer was spotted running into the tunnel during Kansas City's ensuing drive, presumably to retrieve their lost star.
