Dog Tackles Child, Returns Fumble, Prompting Twitter Response From NFL

Of all the dog breeds, the Great Pyrenees is possibly the most defensive-minded — all I’m saying is don’t go over the middle and expect not to be punished for it.

This video of a backyard football game is from 2012, but it resurfaced recently for a whole ton of people who have never seen it. Hilarity ensues when a kid in a Troy Polamalu jersey gets tackled by a dog. The kid fumbles on the devastating hit, and the dog picks up the loose ball and returns it for a TD.

One of the parties who had never seen the video is NFL senior vice president of officiating Dean Blandino, who responded on Twitter on Wednesday.
