Jared Allen had the best sack of the year on Eli Manning (GIF)
Allen was credited for a half sack of Eli Manning during his team’s 23-7 loss in New York. I don’t think a player has ever worked harder or done more to earn a half sack. While being blocked by Giants offensive lineman Will Beatty, Allen somehow reached his arms around the 320-pounder and grabbed Manning by the shoulder pad and jersey. Allen held Eli in place while defensive tackle Kevin Williams came in and cleaned the play up.
It was a lone bright spot in what turned out to be an ugly game for both teams — particularly Minnesota. The Vikings will probably look back at the play later in the year and appreciate it even more.
