The "Huncho Day on the NAWF" took place on Sunday, a flag-football battle between 2 Chainz's Team Huncho and Julio Jones' Team Jones at the Berkmar High School in Georgia and organized by Quavo of Migos.

When the dust settled, Team Julio pulled off the overtime win. Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored the game-winning touchdown, per William McFadden of the Atlanta Falcons' website:

On the next play, Zeke wins it for Team Julio and then finishes with the DUNK to close it. #HunchoDay https://t.co/QAI5RKkOkN

Jones was the MVP, meanwhile:

The rosters for the game were loaded, as a number of NFL stars—from Jones and Mohamed Sanu of the Atlanta Falcons to Elliott, Alvin Kamara, Josh Norman, Todd Gurley, A.J. Green and Von Miller—and musicians took the field. Quavo shared the full list:

While Elliott and Jones were the heroes, Sanu—who played quarterback for much of the day—had his share of struggles:

Tough day for the QBean out here. That’s the second pick for Mo Sanu. #HunchoDay https://t.co/hEpdNisyxR

It’s not often that Julio gets beaten on a ball, but apparently it does happen... #HunchoDay https://t.co/HmDrQblCZ8

Wide receiver Martavis Bryant, meanwhile, showed off his chops at defensive back:

Martavis Bryant has like 9 picks out here today. I think he needs to switch over to defense. #HunchoDay

Certainly, the people in the community were excited to attend the unique event.

"It's one of the greatest things that probably could ever happen to our community," Berkmar football coach Willie Gary told Fox 5 Atlanta last week, adding: "This is special for this community, and they need something like this. I'm excited for everybody. It's pretty exciting."
