Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was hammered by Miami Dolphins’ Kiko Alonso in a spectacular smash.
The quarterback went on a nice run and slid in feet first, meaning the defender should pull out of the hit, but Alonso went through with it anyway, sending Flacco’s hemet flying and cuing a melee with nearly everyone on the field.

Flacco left the field with concussion and Alonso was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for the foul.
For what it’s worth, Alonso did show some remorse for his actions, adding that Flacco should have gone down a touch sooner.
