Power Tackle

"Cornerback Jerraud Powers #26 of the Baltimore Ravens attempts to sack quarterback Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth quarter at M&T Bank Stadium on November 6, 2016 in Baltimore, Maryland."

Each and every week as a photographer you never know what you'll document.

No matter what the sport, when something unique happens, it occurs so fast sometimes that one cannot even process what occurred until the play ends.

Last week as the Baltimore Ravens played the Pittsburgh Steelers, I saw cornerback Jerraud Powers coming around the backside of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. As quickly as he was running for the sack, I wasn't sure if he'd actually make contact for the sack.

His speed was quicker than I anticipated, and Roethlisberger also predicted the pressure. Powers ended up going head over heels to eventually pull him down.

The power of the two players was something I've never seen as they battled to make a play - and the moment ended up making an interesting picture that was also telling of the game.
