Watch: George Kittle handles Lions’ Aidan Hutchinson with powerful block

While George Kittle’s pass-catching ability usually is what makes headlines, the five-time Pro Bowl tight end is just as dangerous of a weapon in the run game. In the NFC championship, Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers were tasked with slowing down Detroit Lions’ star edge defender Aidan Hutchinson.

As Shanahan dialed up an inside run to Christian McCaffrey, Kittle was tasked with blocking Hutchinson on the edge. In a one-on-one battle in the trenches, the veteran tight end buried Hutchinson with a powerful block.
