Patriots cornerback Johnson Bademosi was hit in the face with a football this afternoon after a frustration spike by Robby Anderson. Sounds painful, but don’t cry for Johnson — he was wearing his helmet and came away from the incident not needing dental work. Huge win for him:
Bademosi also stole the Flop of the Year award from Marcus Smart, as this additional angle shows him taking an egregious dive in an attempt to get Anderson flagged. His fellow teammates played along because, duh, it’s the Pats:

ESPN’s Mike Reiss notes Bademosi was able to return to the game after that performance:
Johnson Bademosi comes on the field for this punt return, as he is OK after apparently taking the brunt of that spiked football by Robby Anderson along the sideline.
