Trent Williams tackles James Laurinaitis

Late Sunday night, I read John Keim’s “10 Observations” feature for the Examiner, as I always do late on Sunday nights. One of the veteran scribe’s observations made me go back to the videotape:

Do yourself a favor and check out Trent Williams’ hustle on the Laurinaitis interception. You want to see athleticism? Watch him come from across the field to make the tackle.

So I did myself a favor and watched it. Pretty remarkable. At a minimum, Williams’s play appeared to save the Redskins five yards, which was likely the different between St. Louis punting or attempting a field-goal after Sam Bradford was sacked twice on the ensuing drive.

And so, in addition to the above video, I thought maybe we should take a look at the key frames from the play.
