Perfect example of a running back lowering his head and delivering a legal and safe blow

This is textbook of what the NFL wants. Use of the shoulder, no leading with the crown of the head. This is a play that still shows tough football with the ball carrier and the tackler, but it is a safer play as neither player is propelling their heads against each other as weapons.

When Jeff Fisher was talking about bringing back the shoulder into the game, this is the type of play that was prevalent in the league decades ago.

This tape should be used as a means to show players and fans alike that we can still have physical, yet safe football.
