WATCH | NFL player suffers same fate as Robbie Fleck

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf suffered an embarrassing moment during an NFL game against the Dallas Cowboys over the weekend.

Metcalf didn't see Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs coming up behind him and had the ball knocked out of his grasp.

Fortunately for Metcalf, the Seahawks defeated the Cowboys 38-31.

The incident reminds of former Stormers centre Robbie Fleck, who suffered the same fate against the Sharks in a Super 12 game in Wellington back in 2001.

Fleck looked to be cruising over for a try when he slowed down, only to be hauled in by Sharks centre Deon Kayser, whose tackle dislodged the ball.

The Sharks went on to win the match 23-19.
