As if we needed any reminder that football, particularly NFL football, is a brutal game that is played by some of the toughest players. Jason Snelling offers us a reminder just in case.

Snelling caught two passes in the game and served mostly as the fullback in Atlanta's offense. He carried the ball 44 times for 151 yards this season in a reserve role at both running back positions. He is a part of a long list of Falcons free agents as they head into the offseason.
