Ever met an NFL kicker or punter? In most cases, they look like the most fit guy you'd ever see in day-to-day life. Consider that as you see what happens to Seattle punter Jon Ryan when he tries to bring down Indy's Delano Howell on a breakaway.

The scene was this: Seattle was trying a field goal, and Indianapolis managed to block it. The ball got loose, Howell got hold of it, and Ryan — who holds on field goals — tried to take matters into his own hands. Indy's Mario Harvey, who outweighs Ryan by 50 pounds, was having none of it. Still, credit Ryan for having the stones to go for it, right? Just remember: if you tried to make an NFL-level tackle, this is how it would go.
The touchdown gave Indianapolis the lead in one of the better games of the early session.
