VINE: Nick Foles Inexplicably Survives Brutal Hit By Clay Matthews
The St. Louis Rams have a tall enough task having to face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field -where they are practically unbeatable - without having to worry about Nick Foles getting his ribs crushed by Clay Matthews hitting him square in the middle at what appears to be approximately 123 mph.
Okay so let's be honest here. If you saw Nick Foles just walking down the street or in the grocery store, your first thought wouldn't be "Now that guys right there is definitely a world-class athlete!" And yet, I don't know a human being outside of the NFL that wouldn't die after getting hit like that. Not only did Foles not die, but he is still out there playing, and even throwing touchdown passes.
I'm not even 100% sure that hit by Matthews is legal, but either way, it takes quite a lot of mental and physical fortitude to get back up after a hit like that and ask for more. Good on ya, Nick. Good on ya.
