The NFL loves to raise money to help out worthy causes, with one of the most notable causes being Breast Cancer Awareness, which the players wear pink uniforms. Players themselves have their own causes throughout the season which they raise money for too.

According to USA Today, New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall hosted a: "celebrity-packed ping-pong tournament to raise funds and awareness for PROJECT 375, an organization which works to eradicate the stigma surrounding mental health and promotes early intervention and prevention of mental health disorders in children and adolescents."

One of those celebrities was none other than the NFL commissioner himself, Roger Goodell, who challenged the six-time Pro Bowler to a game of ping-pong, and the end result was fantastic.

As you can see in the video further down in this article, the two had a rally going until Goodell brought out his secret weapon, a monster forehand.

In one swooping motion, the NFL commissioner delivered the amazing forehand to serve the final blow and win the game against the Jets wideout. Once again, Goodell was victorious against the league's players.

However, there is a chance Marshall allowed the commissioner to win because it's hard to believe that a guy who is paid millions of dollars a year to have fantastic hand-eye coordination in a certain position on the field to not win in a game of ping-pong. Unless the six-time Pro Bowler is losing his touch?

Marshall is currently sitting on 24 receptions for 363 yards and two touchdowns so far this season after five games. The Jets play away against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night next week.
