Marcus Peters chucks penalty flag into Jets stands in frustration and then leaves the game

Peters was fed up, and made one lucky fan quite happy.

The Chiefs have been locked in a battle with the Jets on Sunday in East Rutherford, and Marcus Peters eventually had enough.

After a Josh McCown rushing touchdown, a defensive holding was called on Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson, and Peters took the official’s penalty flag and threw it into the stands:

Not only did Peters make a fan happy, but he came back with no socks. This has been the most interesting development of this Sunday.
