On just the third play of Sunday’s wild-card game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings, Janoris Jenkins rocked Adam Thielen and forced a fumble.
Check out this perfect hit, which dislodged the ball and gave the Saints early momentum.

Now here’s a look at the big play in full:
The Saints would have been set up in even better shape if Saints safety Vonn Bell had been able to stay in bounds. After review, it was determined that his left foot did go out of bounds right after recovering the ball, setting up New Orleans at the Minnesota 27-yard line.
