Earl Thomas was so excited for a big hit, he flattened teammate in celebration (Video)

Seattle safety Earl Thomas is one of the best in the NFL, and part of the reason is his passion for the game.

If fellow Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor didn't know about Thomas' passion before Sunday, he found out after Thomas made a big play against Tennessee.

In the fourth quarter, Thomas had a big hit on an incompletion on a third down and 4, and he was fired up. He found Chancellor and got ready for a chest bump. But it turned into more of a chest obliteration. Thomas went up, and in his excitement went a little too hard and knocked Chancellor flat on his back.

The two probably shared a good laugh over the blooper, considering Seattle won 20-13.
