New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford had himself a great game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he was randomly drug tested on Monday.

Weatherford tweeted a picture of the note:

The 30-year-old had two punts of at least 65 yards, including a 68-yard punt, and he pinned two of his five punts inside the 20-yard line. He averaged 54.6 yards per punt, with a net average of 51.6 yards.

Earlier this year, Weatherford showed that he is in pretty good shape:

He isn't the first punter to be tested after a good game this season. Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was randomly tested after he put a big hit on Denver Broncos returner Trindon Holliday.

Both punters were oddly tested after noteworthy performances.

Hat tip to Deadspin for the find.
