San Diego Fleet quarterback Philip Nelson turned heads Sunday after he completed a bizarre no-look pass to one of his receivers as he was getting chased by Atlanta Legends defensive linemen.
Nelson was attempting to avoid a sack when he turned his back toward his offense and tossed the football over his head like a bouquet of flowers at a wedding.

Luckily for Nelson and the Fleet, tight end Gavin Escobar caught the pass and ran the ball for a short gain.
Nelson made his first start for the Fleet against the Legends, replacing Mike Bercovici who started in last week’s loss to the San Antonio Commanders.
