Something odd happened on Sunday during the Seattle Seahawks' matchup with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll attempted to throw his challenge flag but instead grabbed something else and it fell from his pocket. No one seems to know what it actually was.

Your guess is as good as ours, and maybe we'll find out what it was after the game.
