Eagles OL Jordan Mailata Destroyed TJ Watt on Blindside Trap Block
Most casual NFL fans have grown familiar with the Pittsburgh Steelers' rising star EDGE rusher T.J. Watt, but third-year offensive lineman and former seventh-round NFL Draft pick Jordan Mailata did his best in Week 5 to put some respect on his own name when matched up with Watt.
Watt had a solid performance Sunday, but Mailata and all his 340-plus pounds certainly got the best of him on this goal-line play by the Eagles' offense.
Despite Miles Sanders scoring a touchdown on this play highlighted above, neither Mailata nor the Eagles did enough in the end to come out on top, falling 38-29 to the Steelers in the end.
However, you have to love seeing a seventh-round pick proving to the world that he can hang with the best of them by knocking a highly-talented and proven first-round pick to the ground on a goal-line clash like this.
