Thomas scored a one yard touchdown on the first possession of the second half. He then proceeded to toss the ball to Eric Decker.
Decker was standing under the goalpost preparing to toss the ball up to to Thomas for an alley-oop, but before Thomas could set for his fake dunk, Stokley slapped the ball out of Decker’s hands.
According to Stokley, his comrades were none to pleased.
“What did I get? I mean, they were mad at me on the sideline for stopping them,” Stokley said. “It’s tough being a dad sometimes, you know.”
Stokley for his part feels he saved his teammates about $15,000 to $25,000 in fines,
