The Falcons’ Steven Jackson Bulldozes Into End Zone (GIF)

Steven Jackson, running back for the Atlanta Falcons, recently showed the value in a larger running back during Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

During a play that demonstrated exactly what the sport of football is all about, he ran the ball into the end zone, not bothering to stop just because Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson was in his way.

No matter which team you were rooting for, you have to admit that Wilson deserves more than a little bit of credit for diving in front of an oncoming truck like Jackson.  Be that as it may, he failed to even slow SJax down, and ended up flying back a good five yards upon impact. Maybe after his NFL career is done, Wilson can become a Hollywood stuntman, because there’s no way it could be worse than getting slammed by Steven Jackson.

In case you missed it, there’s an animated GIF of the Falcons’ Steven Jackson smashing through the Redskins’ Josh Wilson below. Not shown: Wilson pausing to check if his head was still screwed on straight after that hit.

Here’s the GIF:
