Patriots-Packers Ref Trips, Does Somersault, Acts Like Nothing Happens (Video)

Kerri Strug would be proud.

A referee was racing down the field as New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Boyce attempted to catch a deep pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in Thursday’s preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

As Boyce dove to catch the overthrown ball, a Packers defensive back crashed into the official, who flew forward into a perfect somersault, stuck the landing and proceeded to walk away as if nothing happened.

7.5/10. Bravo, sir.

Clearly, players aren’t the only ones working out the kinks in the preseason.
