Working on the sideline of NFL games is a job that comes with a lot of perks like meeting players, a great view of the game and maybe even the occasional free Gatorade. Unfortunately, there is also one very big downside as one Gillette Stadium worker learned last night.
New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith was scrambling to get a first down toward the end of the second half when the New England Patriots defense ran him out of bounds and straight into the back of a woman working on the sideline, briefly sending her airborne.
Smith helped the worker up and she appeared to be unharmed, but she will also probably be keeping a closer on the action for the next Pats home game.
