Is there anything more exciting in football than a big man touchdown? Even the most cynical of us can appreciate a 300+ pound lineman breaking the shackles of his regular duties and feeling the wind hit your face as you run into the end zone.

Early in the Falcons-Buccaneers game, right tackle Ty Sambrailo was able to do just that. The Falcons lineman reported as an eligible receiver and everyone on the Buccaneers apparently forgot about that detail as Sambrailo was all alone and ran 35 yards for the TD.

Look at those wheels Sambrailo has. Usually when a lineman scores a touchdown, it’s on the goal line but the Falcons read the defense, exploited that with getting Sambrailo open and then hitting the accelerator for the TD. Brilliant play and execution.
