Niles Paul had one of those hits last Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings that you just want to watch over and over again.
So here you go (courtesty of thevikingage.com).
Paul — a special teams ace when he’s not playing his usual tight end position — was asked all about the punt return smackdown on Vikings returner Marcus Sherels after the 38-24 Redskins victory.
“I just knew that was my opportunity to get down there, kicking it to my side, and make a big play,” he said, discussing the single coverage. “I didn’t see [Sherels] fair catch it, so I just took my shot.
“I was looking around to make sure I didn’t get the flag because his helmet came off,” he continued with a grin. “I didn’t feel like it was a helmet-to-helmet shot, I just threw my shoulder at him. If he didn’t fair catch the ball, that’s his fault. I lowered my shoulder; felt like I made a good play.”
