DOTD: Watch The Human Freight Train Stefen Wisniewski Make Key Downfield Blocks

Several former Penn State football players are still alive in the NFL playoffs and making an impact for their respective teams. One of these players is Eagles offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski, and he made headlines during Philadelphia’s 15-10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons Saturday night.

Here’s the angle from the press box:

Wisniewski leveled a helpless Atlanta defender and quickly latched onto another as Jay Ajayi ran downfield after receiving a Nick Foles screen pass. Wisnewski’s blocks turned what should have been a short gain into a 32-yard reception. The play helped set up an Eagles field goal that extended their lead to five late in the fourth quarter en route to the Eagles’ first NFC Championship Game appearance since 2009.

The play caught the attention of former Penn State tailback Akeel Lynch and NFL Network studio analyst and former offensive lineman Brian Baldinger, who called the play “one of the single greatest plays by an offensive lineman.”

Wisniewski and the Eagles will be back in action next Sunday, January 21 in the NFC Championship Game against the Minnesota Vikings. The game kicks off at 6:40 p.m.
