What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? This classic debate was on full display in this throwback between the St. Louis Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

However, that unstoppable force was quickly stopped when Marshall Faulk got lit up in the backfield by Warren Sapp.

In this play, the two Hall of Famers went head-to-head, and Sapp just came away with the win. Known for dominating the line of scrimmage, when Sapp gets his hands on you, you're done. But to add insult to injury, Sapp did not just bring Faulk down for a loss of yards. The lineman lifted him up and slammed him to the ground like a rag doll.

Aside from both players being in the Hall of Fame, both are also seven-time Pro Bowlers and Super Bowl champions. Sapp was a first-team All-Pro four times, while Faulk only received that distinction on three occasions, though he also has a league MVP under his belt.

If he was able to meet Sapp in the open field, this likely would have had a completely different result.
