George Kittle steals Thanksgiving turkey after Seahawks game
After their remarkable performance in the game, during the NBC broadcast, Kittle along with teammates Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey, and Deebo Samuel, ate turkey.
However, Kittle took the opportunity to “steal” the entire cooked turkey. He was seen running carrying the whole Turkey in one hand.
Instead of keeping the entire turkey for himself, Kittle ran into the tunnel, feeding a pair of lucky fans with the stolen turkey. All the cameras were focused on him and he was running with the turkey towards the stands.
Despite not finishing the entire turkey on the field, Kittle who revealed the harsh reality of their pregame recovery shared turkey legs with delighted San Francisco fans by tossing them into the stands. This moment went viral on social media with many fans loving this act of the TE.
Kittle’s on-field performance included 3 catches for 19 yards during the game. Christian McCaffrey, who had an impressive performance in the game, might have been a more deserving candidate for the entire turkey. However, Kittle decided to steal the turkey and shocked everyone with his bizarre act.
