With the Jets driving for a field goal at the end of the first half, Geno Smith hit Stephen Hill along the sideline. Hill was immediately laid out by Troy Polamalu as soon as the ball arrived. Credit to Hill for hanging on after that vicious shot. It probably cost him a couple of his ribs. Hill also managed to kick Polamalu in the head as he was going down, so bonus points for that. I included the video in lieu of a GIF because the sickening thud is essential to calibrating the viciousness of the hit. Wait, we’re not supposed to celebrate hits anymore? Oh, well, at least it isn’t a head shot.
