The Violence Of Bengals Linebacker Dan Skuta

After Cincinnati took a 17-13 lead with 12 minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Atlanta Falcons brought Chris Redman and the second/third team offense back into the game. Pushing the football from their own 30-yard line to Cincinnati's 39, with a series of runs, screens and scrambles, the Falcons eventually stalled with third-and-11 with 9:07 remaining. Dan Skuta lined up at the right defensive end position, employing the four-point stance with his right leg dramatically extended like a sprinter just before the gun of a race.

Skuta sprinted upfield, locking into left tackle Will Svitek. The linebacker gently knocked set aside the offensive tackle, disrupting his base, opening a lane for the hit. Redman noticed and flipped the football towards the left sidelines, overthrowing tight end Tommy Gallarda's crossing pattern. As Redman released the football, Skuta made the hit.

The play had no real foundation for the game, aside from forcing the Falcons to punt. We just thought you'd like it.
