Watch Shy Tuttle stiff-arm Matt Ryan on an interception return

The New Orleans Saints are on track to lock up the NFC South at the home of their oldest rival. The Saints are up 20-9 on the Atlanta Falcons, and they just added some serious insult to injury.

Late in the third quarter, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw a pass right into the hands of defensive tackle Shy Tuttle. The DT had the end zone on his mind while Ryan decided it made sense to try and tackle a 300 pound human. Ryan went in for the tackle and Tuttle stiff-armed him.

It’s an understatement to call it a stiff arm because he did Ryan oh so dirty on this play. He shoved Ryan to the ground in a big way. Tuttle didn’t make it to the end zone, but he’ll remember that stiff arm for a long time.
