Greg Toler of the Arizona Cardinals likely earned himself a spot in the inevitable end-of-the-year NFL highlight reel yesterday.
During the second half of the Cardinals loss to the Falcons (a very sloppy game), Toler laid out as his teammate knocked the ball out of the opposing player’s hands. Seeing that the ball was about to go out of bounds — and that the chance of a possession change was inches away — Toler dove in an attempt to throw the ball back in bounds. It worked, and his teammate recovered.
