One NFL referee laid quite the hit on head coach Mike Vrabel during the divisional round game between the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens.
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel played in over 200 games during 14 seasons in the NFL, but the biggest hit he has ever taken might have come at the hands of one NFL referee.
The divisional round matchup between the Titans and Baltimore Ravens was one that featured two talented defenses loaded with great players who can drop the hammer on any offensive player carrying the football.
And, the Titans sport running back Derrick Henry, who routinely runs over defenders and did so against the Ravens on Saturday night en route to a victory.
But perhaps the biggest hit of the game between Tennessee and Baltimore might have come from an official.
While Vrabel was standing on the sideline, minding his own business, a referee came flying down the field and inadvertently laid a huge hit on the Titans head coach.
Wait for it…
Poor Vrabel never saw it coming.
Like pretty much every team in the NFL this season, the Titans have had their fair share of issues with officials thanks to bad calls on the field, and said officials have been destroyed by fans because of it.
This might be their way of exacting revenge.
All jokes aside, Vrabel is a tough dude and appears to have absorbed the hit just fine. After all, he’s definitely taken hits from bigger guys when he was a player.
Vrabel and the Titans will meet the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. CST.
