NFL’s Chris Johnson and Devin Hester Race a Cheetah (GIFs)

NFL Players Race Cheetah

The cheetah is the fastest land animal on Earth, so it might seen natural to arrange a race between it and some of the fastest humans around. Answering the challenge placed by Nat Geo Wild for their “Big Cat Week” of programming was Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester and Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson.

Of the two, Hester came out on top. But I’m going to have to call shenanigans on this race, as you can clearly see that he gets a head start over the cat. But it’s still pretty interesting to watch.  After all, how often do you get to see a human race a cheetah outside of a cartoon?

You can see NFL speedsters Devin Hester and Chris Johnson race against a cheetah in the animated GIFs below. Maybe next year they can put a cheetah in pads and see how he handles a football.
