Marquette King Earns Penalty For Celebrating With Flag Thrown For Roughing The Kicker

Marquette King is a one-man anti-No Fun League machine, and the Raiders punter made it count late in Oakland’s game against Buffalo today by taking the flag thrown against Corey White for roughing—one that extended the drive and sealed a Raiders win—and celebrating with it.

That earned King his own unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, though as it happened after the play it didn’t offset the roughing call. Instead, the Raiders started a new series at first-and-25.
