Jacquizz Rodgers Goes Beast Mode on Seattle Seahawks Defense

Jesse Reed@@JesseReed78Correspondent IJanuary 13, 2013

Jacquizz Rodgers showed Marshawn Lynch he's not the only running back capable of going "beast mode" on NFL defenses on Sunday.

On the final play of the first quarter between the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons, Rodgers ran roughshod through the teeth of the 'Hawks defense for a 45-yard gain.

Even more impressive than the yardage was the way Rodgers finished off the play, running over safety Earl Thomas with authority.

Fake SportsCenter compared Rodgers' hit to another legendary play from this year's college football action:

Jacquizz Rodgers just Clowney'd Earl Thomas

Finally, Pro Football Talk took a dig at Seattle's fans:

Jacquizz Rodgers' run just registered on the Richter scale in Seattle for very different reasons.

Rodgers' run embodies the way this game has gone. The Seahawks came into this game widely regarded by most analysts as the most physical team in the playoffs, but the Falcons have been the aggressors from the opening whistle.
