Shutdown Corner

Darren Sproles flips the much-larger Aldon Smith off his back (VIDEO)

In this corner, we have Aldon Smith. The San Francisco 49ers' linebacker is sporting red and gold, stands 6-foot-4 and weighs in at 258 lbs. In this corner, we have Darren Spoles. Wearing black and gold, the New Orleans Saints running back stands a scant 5-foot-6 and tips the scales at 190 lbs. Who will win the showdown?

And, it's a draw. The diminutive Sproles has enough back and leg strength to flip Smith, who is having a stellar season, off his back. However, Smith keeps his wits about him and still holds onto Sproles for the tackle.

It was another good game for Smith, the league's leading sack man. He garnered 1.5 sacks to help the 49ers to a 31-21 win over the Saints.
